High Quality Instruction Matched to State Standards

By Dale Petrulis

Candidate for Board Member; Redondo Beach Unified School District

This information is provided by the candidate
We must take all steps to ensure that our students are offered a superior educational program that maximizes each student's potential and their ability to make good post high school choices.
Problem: Although our students are doing well, the adoption of standards-based instructional materials would better prepare our students to achieve their potential.


  • adopt standards-based textbooks and materials in all content areas and at all school levels
  • continue to align our daily instruction to adopted state standards, using teacher expertise and experience to make the instruction meaningful to students
  • ensure that we provide all necessary materials for teachers and staff to perform their responsibilities
  • hold high expectations for all students while ensuring that we give them the skills to meet those expectations
  • invest in our teachers and staff by ensuring that they are provided ongoing standards-based professional development to continue a rigorous instructional program (AB 466-available in mathematics and language arts)
  • invite, involve, and support our parents, as partners, in the education of our Redondo Beach students
  • provide ongoing professional development for all administrators
  • develop instructional leaders representing stakeholders from all groups, including teachers, classified staff, parents and community members
  • provide emotional, social and character growth within the materials and teaching provided
