Educational Services

The Educational Services Department is available to provide a range of supports, from instructional strategies to professional development opportunities, that complement the work of school based teams and staff. Each school level has an assigned district administrator team. School administrators can access this team through one district email for each level (see below). If it is an emergent issue, please contact an administrator team member by phone. You can also find additional resources and information on our websites.
