Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS)

  • As stipulated in the Texas Education Code, school districts are required to provide instruction in essential knowledge and skills at the appropriate grade levels. The Division of Curriculum of the Texas Education Agency (TEA) oversees the development and implementation of the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) in public schools.

    At Roberts Elementary, teachers design transdisciplinary units of inquiry through which all of the TEKS are taught to mastery.

    A thorough overview of the TEA's Curriculum and Educational Programs can be found at the TEA website.
