Curriculum and Professional Development

  • The State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness, or STAAR, replaced the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) program in spring 2012. The implementation of STAAR in the Houston Independent School District is overseen by the Curriculum Department which provides relevant, aligned curricula, academic and instructional leadership, and professional development opportunities that support teachers, administrators, and parents.
