New Math Standards Overview for Students in Kindergarten Through Eighth Grade
In 2012, the State Board of Education adopted new mathematics standards, the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). The standards for kindergarten through eighth grade are being fully implemented this school year. Revised standards for high school mathematics will be implemented in the 2015-2016 school year.

The changes made at the state level to the mathematics TEKS (standards) were quite extensive and affect our Franklin ISD Mathematics Curriculum. Some TEKS have shifted down from other grade levels while others are brand new. In order to prepare for these changes, FISD has been working over the past year to prevent gaps in learning as students transition to the new expectations.
