Curriculum / Testing
The key component to our district-wide efforts to consistently improve the education for all of our students is the absolute necessity for our teachers to have and use a “guaranteed and viable curriculum."
Ore City ISD currently uses the TEKS Resource System (TRS), which is a systematic K-12 curriculum model, designed, maintained and continuously developed by various Education Service Center personnel along with district educators throughout Texas. The purpose is to provide a common language structure and process for curriculum development.
The Vertical Alignment Documents (VAD), Year at a Glance (YAG), TEKS Verification Documents, and Instructional Focus Documents (IFD) comprise most of the Ore City ISD curriculum documents. These documents provide a consistent scope and sequence for instructional delivery and are the foundation for all instructional planning.
The curriculum itself is non-negotiable since we are legally bound as educators to implement the state standards. However, the actual journey the teachers plan with their students may look quite different in that it will be responsive to differing student interests, abilities, and teachers’ creativity.
