The Victoria Independent School District's goal is to ensure that every student has access to a guaranteed and viable curriculum. 

Executive Statement

Victoria ISD is required to use the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) as the standards that drive instruction. The TEKS Resource System (TRS) is the resource that VISD teachers are required to use for the core content areas (English language arts, mathematics, science and social studies) that includes TEKS Verification Documents, the Instructional Focus Documents (IFD), Year-At-A-Glance (YAG), Vertical Alignment Documents (VAD), Exemplar Lessons aligned to units of study, and assessments for each unity of study. Pre-Advanced Placement (PreAP) courses in mathematics and English language arts and reading will follow the College Board and will have their syllabus and materials approved through the College Board audit process. Other content areas such as fine arts, health and physical education, career and technical education and languages other that English will continue to use the state TEKS as the foundation for their lesson development along with any other documents developed by the VISD Curriculum, Instruction and Accountability Department,
