Curriculum & Instruction

Texarkana Independent School District's Curriculum & Instruction program provides relevant, aligned curriculum, academic and instructional leadership, and professional development opportunities that support teachers and administrators in the delivery of effective instruction which enhances learning and improves achievement for all students.

We believe that the curriculum helps to develop knowledgeable, skilled, concerned, thinking young people who are prepared to enter higher education institutions or the working world of tomorrow.
