Note: if the Create District Version button is missing, this means it is turned off in the District Content Settings. Contact your District Content Administrator to request that this be turned on.

 

By default, the system appends your district name to the existing YAG or IFD title. However, this title can be modified as necessary to suit your district's needs.

Modifying the District Version of the YAG

After creating a district version of a TEKS RS YAG, you may remove some of the existing standards by unchecking the desired boxes.

To remove an existing unit from the YAG, click the Remove button in the upper right corner of the unit. To reorder the units, either click the title to drag and drop the desired unit to its new location, or click the Move Up or Move Down buttons to achieve the desired position.

Once the components have been customized and are ready for district users, they can then be published. Please see the Make District Content Available to Users support guide for more information.

 

District Content Creators/Admins can also create these components from scratch, using their own district-defined content, alignments, and resources.
