TEKS Resource System

This site will allow you to better understand how you can help your child, what content your child is learning, the order in which the curriculum is being taught and additional information that will better allow you to understand the curriculum concept in Dalhart ISD.

TEKS Resource System is a curriculum framework that clearly articulates the expectations of students that are identified from the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS).  TEKS Resource System's blueprint for success is achieved through concepts and understandings, performances and products, and instructional delivery. Instructors are provided the tools to teach the TEKS in an effective manner.

If you would like more information on our curriculum, the TEKS Resource Parent Portal is now available. On the parent portal select the grade level and subject area that you are interested in. You will see a box to check for "6 Weeks Version" - please check this box, since we operate on a six weeks' schedule.

  3. Innovative Technology
  4. Aligned written, taught, and tested curriculum
  5. Clarified and specified TEKS/STAAR expectations assembled in a vertical alignment format
  6. Customizable instructional plans that allow district resources to be integrated into the system.

Components of TEKS Resource System:

Vertical Alignment Documents

The TEKS Resource System Vertical Alignment Documents present clearly articulated and aligned standards among grade levels using the TEKS statements and student expectations.  The Vertical Alignment Documents present a tightly aligned curriculum that delineates student expectations with specificity.  This ensures that the teacher understands exactly what is to be taught and can plan effective instruction.

Year At A Glance/ Pacing Guide

The TEKS Resource System Year at a Glance is designed to present a snapshot of the entire year's instructional plan.  The Year at a Glance is a map and pacing guide for units of study.  It makes the curriculum viable by ensuring that the teacher has adequate instructional time to present the required content.

Instructional Focus Documents

TEKS Resource System Instructional Focus Documents are used to group the specified standards from the Vertical Alignment Documents and the Year at a Glance into a logical sequence for instruction.
