The State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness (STAAR) is the current state-mandated testing program for students in grades 3-12, designed to assess progress and to make they are on track for graduation and/or college and careers.
Students take grade-level STAAR tests in Reading, Math, Writing, Science, and Social Studies.
- Students who take Algebra I as an eighth-grader are only required to take the Algebra I End-of-Course exam (EOC) this year. Middle school students taking Algebra I WILL NOT be required to take the grade-level STAAR math assessment in addition to the Algebra I EOC.
- Looking ahead to high school, students will review their endorsement options with a teacher or school advisor.
- Students who are not demonstrating academic success will develop Personal Graduation Plans before entering high school.
Entering ninth-graders are now required to pass five End-of-Course (EOC) exams to graduate.
