Little Elm ISD Administration Recommends Curriculum Audit

As one of the strategies under the District’s Strategic Plan, teaching and learning are at the core. It is also vital to the success of its students and teachers. In order to achieve the goal of engaging each student in rigorous and relevant learning experiences, it is necessary to evaluate the learning programs in place to ensure the highest levels of learning across every grade.


“While our teachers and staff have done a tremendous job creating meaningful and rigorous lessons, we recognize the benefit of taking an in-depth look at how our curriculum is aligned to the State standards,” said Daniel Gallagher, superintendent for Little Elm ISD.


The administration will ask the Board of Trustees, at Monday evening’s Board meeting, to approve a contract with the Texas Association of School Administrators and Curriculum Management Solutions, Inc. The District wants to move forward with its plan to perform an external audit of its curriculum. This is the first curriculum audit performed for Little Elm ISD.


The purpose of the audit is to take an objective look at the current curriculum and how well it is aligned with the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills or TEKS. The reviewers for this extensive audit will be nationally recognized curriculum experts and educational leaders selected from across the US and from Texas.


“There is no doubt in my mind, we have some of the hardest working teachers at Little Elm ISD,” said Gallagher. “It is our responsibility to intentionally design curriculum that will impact the children served by Little Elm ISD both today and as they create their futures.” 


The audit will investigate the District’s curriculum under five universally accepted standards. Those standards are:


  • Governance and Control

  • Direction and Clientele Expectations

  • Connectivity and Consistency

  • Assessment and Feedback

  • Productivity and Efficiency


The audit is expected to take place during the months of October or November. A preliminary report will be sent to the District ten days after the site visit and a full report will be available after three months. The District will post the findings on its website.
