Curriculum & Instruction
The Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction is responsible for administering the instructional program of the district, updating curriculum and working with teachers, principals and instructional specialists to provide a strong, comprehensive educational program. Support areas include Elementary and Secondary Principals, Instructional Specialists, Special Education, Bilingual Programs, Gifted & Talented Education, Athletics, Fine Arts, Early Childhood, Special Programs, Testing, Accountability and more.
Elementary Education includes Pre-K through 6th grade and Secondary Education includes 7th through 12th grade.
Curriculum encompasses what we want students to know and be able to do after a specific course of study. The Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) provide the roadmap for Texas schools and teachers charged with the responsibility of guiding students on their personal learning journey in grades K-12.
Students are assessed on the TEKS and Student Expectations at checkpoints in grades 3-11 by taking tests referred to as the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR). More information about the TEKS and STAAR is available on the TEA webpage.
