Due to the increase of expectations through state standards and assessments, curriculum needs have become a focus in the district. The goal of the Lumberton School District is to ensure that every student has access to a rigorous instructional program required for college and career readiness. As indicated in the district’s vision statement, increasing student achievement to be productive citizens is the primary goal.

The Curriculum department is committed to meeting the district’s instructional goal. LISD believes in collaboration and planning with teachers to build and develop the district curriculum. The Curriculum department prepares a standards-based curriculum that is aligned to the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) and to STAAR (State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness). A common standards-based curriculum provides LISD teachers access to the resources necessary to plan, teach, and assess instruction and student learning effectively.

The following documents support the standards-based curriculum and serve as a guide for teachers and parents for every student’s academic success.

  • Year-At-a-Glance (scope and sequence)
  • Vertical Alignment
  • TEKS
  • College and Career Readiness Standards
  • English Language Proficiency Standards
  • STAAR Instructional Materials (TEA)
