For all state-approved courses, the State of Texas has developed the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) which define the guidelines under which La Porte ISD must develop the objectives for the course. These TEKS are cross-referenced to the LPISD curriculum objectives. In addition, LPISD objectives are also cross-referenced to the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) Standards of Performance.


The complete TEKS document, which was approved by the Texas State Board of Education, may be found on the internet at www.tea.state.tx.us/teks and is accessible to teachers, parents, and students.
