Teaching and Learning

Welcome to the Department of Teaching and Learning

Dear students, staff, and community members:

Welcome to the UPSD Teaching and Learning website. The Department of Teaching and Learning is committed to enhancing the overall experience of all stakeholders within our educational system. We are committed to continuous progress to assist students on their journey of discovery. From preschool to our transition program, we strive to provide an atmosphere where every student is successful and prepared to meet the challenges of a complex world.

On these pages you will find helpful information concerning all areas of instruction, including assessment, professional development, and special services and programs. Eventually, we will be adding detailed information on curriculum as well, including numerous resources to help staff and parents support student learning. If there is a specific resource you would like to see on-line, please e-mail any one of us at the address listed below.
Again, welcome to our website.

Jeff Loupas, Assistant Superintendent
