Math Updates:

Spring Math PD Update: Due to the sub shortage, the curriculum department will be replacing the job-embedded spring PDs with an on-line PD for teachers. The on-line PD will be on the same dates slated for the job-embedded PD. The teachers will be able to receive the PD as a team and special program teachers/facilitators can be apart of the learning as well (SpEd, DLC, Dyslexia, GT, etc). The PD will be recorded so it can be viewed at anytime.

Please make sure you cancel the subs you may have scheduled for the job-embedded PDs.


The schedule for our online PDs:


  • January 14: 5th grade
  • January 21: 4th grade
  • February 11: 2nd grade
  • February 19: 3rd grade
  • February 25: 1st grade
  • March 22: Kinder


Cluster 3 is now posted for third grade. Please watch the videos that are attached in the cluster planner tab to provide clarity on the fraction TEKS.

Science Update

Science curriculum documents for second semester will be uploaded to forethought by Jan. 8th. Our writers will be working on updating the spring semester on Jan. 7th. If there are documents that are linked on forethought, then the lesson is good to go. If there is not a link, then it is being worked on.
