JISD will utilize the TEKS Resource System outline as their curricular foundation.
- TEKS Resource System is a comprehensive, customizable, user-friendly curriculum management system. (Provides specificity)
- The key component of TEKS Resource System is the vertical alignment. Vertical alignment through academic language, core road map emphasis, and coordination to keep everyone on track is a vital component to planning for success from K-12th grade. The implementation of the vertical alignment document (VAD) also ensures that each grade level is providing adequate instructional delivery for future grade-level teachers providing the pre-requisite knowledge that they will need to build on.
JISD will follow the TEKS Resource System sequence. It determines WHAT and WHEN to teach the state-mandated TEKS.
