The goal of HISD is to ensure that every student has access to a rigorous instructional program required for college and career readiness. HISD has a standards-based curriculum that is aligned to the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) and to STAAR (State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness). For more information, please see Curriculum and Instruction. A common standards-based curriculum guarantees that every HISD teacher has access to resources necessary to plan, teach, and assess instruction and student learning effectively. Parents can support our school by making themselves familiar with the expectations of their child’s teacher. Below are some resources that can help enrich your child’s education.
THINK THROUGH MATH
Designed for students in grades 3 through high school, Think Through Math (TTM) is a learning system that provides quality math instruction and supports students - and teachers – in unprecedented ways. Developed by teachers and technologists to help students prepare for rigorous Common Core and TEKS standards and assessments, TTM accelerates student understanding and supports classroom effectiveness.
- HISD offers a free summer school program for all students in grades Pre-K through 12 who need to meet promotion standards and/or pass the STAAR or TAKS test. Summer programs are coordinated at the district level, planned at the campus level, and customized to meet the individual needs of students. The extended time offered by summer programs provides students with additional opportunities to achieve the schools year’s final expected outcomes. It is the goal of HISD that through effective summer programs, all students who need this extended time will meet the required promotion standards, be prepared for success at the next grade level, and be on-track to graduate with their peers. More information about Summer School can be found on the district’s curriculum website. Specific information about our school will be updated as it is developed.
