The primary function of the Department of Curriculum is to support campuses through the development and implementation of a high-quality curriculum, research-based instructional practices and programs, and assessments that support student learning. In addition, the Department provides professional development opportunities for district educators to ensure that they have the content knowledge and instructional skills to effectively deliver and support the implementation of the Bay City ISD curriculum. The Department of Curriculum also oversees Matagorda County Educational Services, the Gifted/Talented and Advanced Academic programs, Career and Technical Education, the Bilingual/ESL programs, Dyslexia services, Counseling services, and Nursing services. The Department also monitors and assists with services provided through compensatory education and federally funded programs. While the main focus is supporting high quality, effective first teaching practices, the department supports the varied needs of the District’s diverse student population.

Lisa Moya is the Assistant Superintendent for BCISD. She has worked 22 years in Bay City ISD and has twenty-seven years of experience working in Texas Public Education.
Moya was Supervisor at MCES (Matagorda County Educational Services Special Education Cooperative) in Matagorda County from August 2012 through the summer of 2016. In her role at MCES she worked with parents, staff, and administrators of 18 campuses within five school districts in Matagorda County throughout the Admission, Review, and Dismissal process to ensure student success as well as compliance with state and federal regulations. She also worked with Curriculum Directors throughout the county to develop a cohesive 504 Program across the county. She developed a 504 Coordinator Handbook, and trained all 18 campuses in the use of ESTAR 504 compliance system. Additionally she developed a Response to Intervention Process, Dyslexia program, and Inclusion programs across the county K-12 focusing on collaborative teaching strategies for struggling learners.
Moya also served as a member of the BCISD District Leadership team that analyzed student data to realize that there was a need for an extended elementary day in BCISD. She wrote a proposal to extend the elementary day to include a coordinated intervention period that would allow all students to receive targeted intervention, tutoring, or enrichment services during the regular school day without missing core instructional time. In the spring of 2015, she assisted Bay City Junior High teachers in developing an academic intervention plan resulting in improved STAAR scores which allowed the campus to exit the Texas Education Agencies "Improvement Required Status.”
Prior to 2012, Moya served BCISD as an Assistant Principal at Bay City High School for the 2011-2012 school year; Principal at McAllister Intermediate School 2005-2011; Federal Programs Coordinator for BCISD 2002-2005; Special Education Counselor at Matagorda County Educational Services 1998-2002; Elementary Music Teacher at Roberts Elementary, and prior to joining BCISD she taught Elementary Music in a cross-curriculum setting in core academic classes at Goldsmith Elementary in the Ector County ISD 1991-1996.
As principal of McAllister Intermediate for six years, she worked with campus staff to develop a data-driven instructional process to analyze student achievement data and provide targeted intervention which resulted in the Texas Education Agency “Recognized” rating for the campus. She developed Professional Learning Communities at McAllister Intermediate involving teachers, staff, parents, and community members to address challenges of discipline, student motivation, and academic achievement. She worked collaboratively with the McAllister staff and initiated neighborhood walks as an annual back-to-school event, welcoming students back to school by providing school supplies and meeting with parents to provide needed information about school and community resources. She created campus Professional Learning Communities and developed an innovative parent involvement program that provided home visits as well as meetings and training not only in the school, but also in community churches and neighborhood community centers. She developed a tiered discipline plan to include school-wide expectations, procedures, and a positive behavior support system to increase student motivation and decrease discipline referrals.
As a Bay City High School Assistant Principal, she initiated an inclusion program that focused on collaborative teaching in the general education classroom and developed a cohesive Admission, Review, and Dismissal (ARD) process for the campus to improve achievement of students with special needs. She provided training and ongoing support for the BCHS staff in utilizing TEKS Resource System Curriculum and DMAC data disaggregation system to guide instructional decisions and student intervention.
