Instructional Services is committed to involving parents, school personnel, and the community as active partners in planning, delivering, and evaluating our services by working closely with universities, colleges, businesses, government and civic organizations.

Instructional Services promotes all aspects of the educational process through our development and support of technology. We provide training in the use of essential technology tools that enhance curricular, instructional and administrative services in our schools.

We anticipate needs and opportunities, all with the single purpose of identifying, developing and implementing programs and practices that, through education, improve the opportunities for students and staff of Kent ISD.
