Auburn Union Elementary School District's Curriculum and Instruction department supports teaching and learning through curriculum (the content of what is being taught) and instruction (the implementation of teaching), professional development and assessment.
Auburn Union Elementary School District (AUSD) is committed to increasing student achievement, beginning with a focus on high-quality core instruction based on how students learn and what they need to be successful. Good first instruction includes universal core practices common to all great teaching and is vital to student success. High student engagement leads to student academic success.
The Curriculum and Instruction department advances knowledge and practice of teaching and learning by seeking answers to questions such as why to teach, what to teach, how to teach and how to evaluate student learning in the instructional process.
At the base of the framework are universal Tier I supports. These supports include high-quality first instruction and an evidence-based core curriculum for ALL.
Tier II supports provide targeted intervention in addition to Tier 1 instruction for students who need the support. Tier II supports are designed to reduce the intensity of and/or eliminate emerging problems.
For students that are in need of more intensive services, Tier III strategies and programs are utilized. Tier III supports include highly individualized, intensive interventions.
