La Porte ISD is committed to providing all students with an educational experience that allows them to excel academically. To achieve this, we provide curriculum and instructional programs aligned with state standards.  Administrators and teachers work collaboratively to ensure the written, taught, and tested curriculum are aligned throughout the district. Teachers use a variety of research-based instructional strategies and actively engage students in activities to promote conceptual understanding. Teachers are provided with professional development activities, support, and services to enable them to meet the needs of students. Student achievement data is used to evaluate and improve instructional programs.
