The Elgin Independent School District uses the Texas Essential Skills and Knowledge (TEKS) curriculum in English Language Arts and Reading, Math, Science, Languages other than English, Social Studies, the Arts, and Physical and Health Education. Each subject area has a framework that presents a logical progression of skills and knowledge for students to master in the subject, as well as the types of critical thinking activities they should be working on. The objectives provide leeway for teachers to determine the best way to teach each lesson, but ensure that all students are receiving the same high quality standards throughout the state.

Chalk Talk: Good Homework Habits
To help children develop as successful students, parents need to assist them in setting good homework habits. Parents also need to realize that homework should not be a struggle. If the parent and child are not getting along in the moment, take a step away and when things have settled down again, ask the child if they would like any help. Finally, parents need to remember to be a role model for the child. If the parent has a project that needs to be done, set up a time table and work to meet this schedule until the project is done. This can be anything from preparing a meal to completing a presentation for work. Once these habits take hold, homework will be a happier time and a more productive time for parent and child.
