Instructional Services

        Rutherford County Schools' Instructional Services department provides strategic, systemic, and systematic support to ensure that all students are successful during and beyond their school careers. By building capacity, communicating effectively, evaluating data and research, leveraging resources wisely, and establishing effective continuous improvement processes, we actively support high quality teaching and learning that responds to the needs, interests, and abilities of our students and that deeply engages them in each dimension of the curriculum.
