The Soledad USD Educational Services Department oversees teaching and learning across our schools.  We will focus on the alignment of servcies for our staff in order to build capacity within our Soledad community and meet the needs of the whole child. 

Our team is committed to supporting continuous improvement and promoting the work of all schools to give our students access to high-quality curriculum, instruction, and assessment. The department also provides professional development to our outstanding teachers and staff.  In addition, the Educational Services team ensures Soledad USD remains in compliance with all state and federal laws relevant to the education of our students.
