Castro Valley Unified School District highly values the instructional expertise of its teaching staff. In order to support our teachers and ensure that they remain current on curriculum and learning standards, evolving instructional best practices, effective pedagogy to engage and enhance student learning, while meeting the needs of our changing student population, the District has invested in instructional coaches - also known as Teachers on Special Assignment (TOSAs).
Our TOSAs are in a unique position to positively affect classroom instruction to the benefit of our students. TOSAs are themselves classroom teachers with unique areas of expertise. They represent elementary, middle and high school teachers in the core areas of literacy, mathematics, science, and technology. TOSAs come alongside to share information, teach model lessons, assist in building lessons and curriculum, conduct classroom visits, and provide feedback - all in a non-evaluative manner to assist our teachers in developing their effectiveness in meeting the learning needs of their students.
