Lewisville ISD’s curriculum is written by district teacher curriculum writing teams and administrators, and is based on the “Understanding by Design” framework written by Jay McTighe and Grant Wiggins. Through the use of essential questions and enduring understandings, students are able to connect their learning across grade levels and real-world applications. In addition, the district utilizes the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills as a foundation for its learning goals. Please see the course overviews to learn more about the foundation for LISD students to enjoy thriving, productive lives in a future they create.

The State Board of Education (SBOE) has legislative authority to adopt the TEKS for each subject of the required curriculum. SBOE members nominate educators, parents, business and industry representatives, and employers to serve on TEKS review committees. The Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills Review by Subject area web page provides information regarding the SBOE’s process and current and previous reviews.
