6th Math STAAR Field Testing - Feb. 15

Our campus has been chosen to participate in the Math STAAR Field Test on Tuesday, February 15. The purpose of this field test is to evaluate new types of questions being considered for a future STAAR redesign. Students will not be impacted by their performance on this field test, nor will we receive any individual results or data. The benefit to students participating in this field test will be using the online testing system, which is what will be used for the Spring STAAR testing. If you have any questions please contact Megan Cooper, campus Test Coordinator, at 806-863-7104 or

Mrs. Duncan is an 8th grade math teacher on our campus. She also serves as our department head and has done an excellent job moving our math department forward. She works well with our students and is able to find their weakness and develop that skill until they have a great understanding. She is very patient with students and builds excellent relationships.
