Curriculum and Instruction

In our schools, students are exposed to rigorous learning opportunities and curricula that transcend state and national standards. We employ master teachers as curriculum writers. These curriculum coordinators work with teams of teachers every day to build engaging and personalized lessons for students. Whether students work in teams or individually, every minute in the classroom is purposeful. 

Written curriculum documents provide teachers with resources to ensure instruction is aligned to the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS), and the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR). Student assessments, created by district educators, are administered regularly to help teachers identify gaps in learning to adjust instruction and provide individual assistance as needed.

Curriculum councils at the district and learning community levels review the curriculum, lesson plans and assessments to offer adjustments and improvements necessary to help all children learn and achieve.
