The article aims at discussing how the official documents of the curricula of the state of São Paulo, as well as the state's in service teacher training initiatives, provide to teachers guidance towards the development of competencies and skills, with the ultimate objective of guaranteeing successful student performance. The study used semi-structured interviews with a public school teacher in the state of São Paulo, which took place during six meetings. The findings show how the Curriculum of the State of São Paulo, which is part of the System of Assessment of Scholastic Performance in the State of São Paulo (SARESP), when asking elementary school teachers to fulfill the task of affording students the development of competencies and skills, is not effective in its guidance as for the ways of carrying out and modifying teaching practices.
