Curriculum Information

High School Science TEKS

The new Science High School TEKS were scheduled to be implemented in the 2023-2024 school year. However, science is now part of Proclamation 2024. This means that the new Science TEKS will not be implemented until the 2024-2025 school year with the exception of the Specialized Topics in Science courses. TEA and SBOE are working to implement by 2022.
