At the March 2015 Regular Board meeting, the Teaching and Learning Division delivered a Curriculum Update presentation that provided clarification on the Katy ISD curriculum, summarized relevant legislative decisions and described the transition steps to the new Math Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) standards.
During that Board meeting, there was also some discussion about the Common Core standards, how they relate to TEKS and the use of instructional materials that may be aligned with both the Common Core and TEKS. While there may be some alignment among these two sets of standards in instructional materials, Katy ISD's curriculum is solely based on the TEKS.
The Board presentation answers many questions parents may have about the new TEKS standards. If you are a parent or community member, with questions, or would like to learn more about the new Math standards, please reference the presentation from Monday's Board meeting.
