The TEKS Resource System provides districts with a K-12 solution for implementing the state academic standards. This Texas-based system delivers curriculum and assessment components that are customizable and help district staff vertically and horizontally align curriculum, resources, and assessments in order to improve student performance.
Description of Services: During the first year, districts pay an initial, one time technology set-up fee and district and campus license fees, as well as campus subscription fees, plus fees based on enrollment. During the second year and beyond, districts only pay reduced campus fees and fees based on enrollment. Services include 24/7 online access to vertical alignment documents, scope and sequence documents, unit organizers, lesson planning tools, an assessment tool, onsite training and technical support, and ondemand support in the system.
