Our Mission

Our Mission

To support the delivery of quality instruction to all CUSD students.  We believe all students learn best when...
  • their classroom environments are conducive to learning and reflect a culture of community, collaboration, and high expectations for all;
  • they actively engage in a coherent curriculum that reflects rigorous content, and emphasizes critical thinking, application, and innovation;
  • there are clearly communicated goals and objectives;
  • they receive instruction that is focused, purposeful, and appropriately paced;
  • they receive differentiated support for their learning; and
  • they build responsibility for their own learning through an ongoing partnership with their teachers.
