Aligned Round Rock Curriculum[edit]

Round Rock ISD has developed the Aligned Round Rock Curriculum (ARRC) with the assistance of teachers, instructional coaches, and curriculum specialists.

The ARRC documents outline the learning goals and objectives RRISD students are expected to achieve and provides resources for instruction. The ARRC provides teachers with planning documents that:

  • Ensure equal opportunities for all students to learn the curriculum
  • Reduce gaps and unproductive redundancies in the curriculum
  • Serve as a basis for district curriculum-based assessments
  • Focus teacher planning time on instruction
