St. Charles, MO. (May 13, 2015)- Building on successful implementations across various Texas districts, ORIGO Education, the premier source for mathematical resources and professional learning, announces the summer release of Stepping Stones: Texas. This program is now specifically written for Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS), and is 100 percent aligned in grades K-5. Learning List, the industry-leading instructional materials review service for schools and districts, has verified Stepping Stones’ alignment to the TEKS standards.
“The TEKS requirements are exceptional math standards, so updating Stepping Stones to address both the content and intent of the TEKS is a major accomplishment for ORIGO Education,” said Melisa Bartlett, general manager for ORIGO Education. “Addressing the Texas curriculum was critical, but we also wanted to ensure all readiness standards were covered before the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Resources tests are delivered. With all the updates, we believe Stepping Stones is the best math program for Texas teachers and students and we are excited to be delivering it to more districts this summer.”
