Curriculum and Instruction
The Curriculum Department provides a curriculum for use with students across the district. This curriculum is aligned to the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). It also emphasizes the Core Knowledge that all students should learn. This curriculum is continually reviewed and revised as the needs of students evolve.
Providing multiple ways for students to engage in the instruction, teachers are constantly being innovative and engaging in new instructional strategies. This system provides a framework for best practices for instruction. The Continuous Improvement Model and a focus on student ownership of learning are the cornerstones of instruction.
The district works with teachers to provide an assessment system that emphasizes the use of formative data to inform the district's curriculum and instruction. This assessment system focuses on ensuring that each student is prepared for the next grade level or course.
