Alto Independent School District

Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment

Welcome to Curriculum and Assessment!
The State Board of Education (SBOE) has adopted the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) for each subject of the required curriculum.  These state standards drive instruction and identify what students should know and be able to do at every grade and in every subject area.

                                                  The New STAAR Report Card
The Texas Education Agency publishes STAAR report cards for all students every year. These STAAR report cards are often referred to as Confidential Student Reports (CSR). To improve communication and transparency with educators and families, TEA has conducted an overhaul of the STAAR report card. The goal of the redesign is to create a family-friendly report on student progress, specifically highlighting growth and improvement as much as proficiency, while giving parents concrete tools to help with student learning.CSR
