Secondary Education

 

Mission

Systematically moving forward together to ensure the best quality education for all students and to promote college and career readiness.

 

Philosophy

It is imperative that the District provides educational opportunities that will enable each student to develop to his full potential the knowledge and skills, and competencies that are needed to become a responsible member of society.

The secondary department works to ensure a complete alignment between the written curriculum, based on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS), the taught curriculum, based on the TEKS Resource System, and instructional resources, and the tested curriculum, from campus assessments to district benchmark assessments to the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR), End of Course (EOC), and Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS).

In addition, professional development aligned to the Planning Protocol is offered throughout the instructional year and in the summer to allow teachers the opportunity to improve their instructional practices.
