STAAR Testing & Virtual Learning Days

Over the next several weeks, LCISD middle school students will participate in STAAR state assessments. On each testing date, some grade levels will test while others will be expected to participate in virtual learning from home. Below you will find a schedule of upcoming middle school STAAR testing dates. If your child is TESTING, your child will be expected to be on-campus for the entire school day. If your child is NOT TESTING, your child will be expected to participate in at-home virtual learning (using your child's assigned district iPad).

Please remember, if your child is not testing, your child MUST participate in at-home virtual learning in order to avoid being marked absent for the day.

*Please contact Mrs. Parr or Mr. Hendrix if you have any questions about virtual learning on days of STAAR testing.
