Our work is guided by the LAUSD Strategic Plan: Pillar 1 - Academic Excellence: Rigorous and Responsive Academic Programs to Achieve Excellence for All and Pillar 5-Investing in Staff: Development and Uplifting of Talented Staff to Serve All Students.


    Led by the Administrators of Instruction, our coordinators support the schools’ needs including, but not limited to: High-Quality Instruction, Enriching Experiences, Eliminating Opportunity Gaps, and College and Career Readiness. Below is a list of important resources for families’ quick reference.


    The Region North Instructional Services Support (ISS) team has extensive knowledge in standards-based teaching and learning for literacy, numeracy, Social Emotional Learning, and STEAM. Our counseling and A-G team understands the complexities of whole-child programming for students to be successful during and beyond their academic careers. Members of our Instructional team have held a range of K-12 positions, including  teacher, counselor, coordinator, and administrator. Together, we strive to provide cohesive services to all Region North staff, students, and families.
