Teaching & Learning

Welcome to the Teaching and Learning department!

We hope to inform and educate our school community about all that is happening with regard to instruction and curriculum in the Tukwila School District. TSD uses data to inform their decisions and continually updates and fine tunes the instructional program in an efficient and ongoing way to assure that our students receive a rigorous, well-articulated course of studies while in our Pre-K-12 program. On these web pages, we hope to keep stakeholders up-to-date on our latest educational initiatives, provide links that will assist parents and community members in understanding the initiatives and provide ways that families can support or encourage students at home.
