Eagle Students Impacted by STAAR Online Testing Access

On Tuesday, about 100 Argyle ISD students experienced problems accessing their online STAAR Writing tests (4th & 7th grades) and English I EOC assessments (9th grade). These tests are being rescheduled for students that were impacted. Districts state-wide were impacted by the connectivity problems.


All other students testing with pencil and paper were not interrupted. The Texas Education Agency released a statement addressing the issue with the testing provider and said next school year Cambium Assessment "will be taking over these critical testing functions to ensure that users have a seamless online testing experience moving forward."

Furst Ranch Information for Eagle Families

Argyle ISD is providing this important information regarding the proposed Furst Ranch development. (This message was also emailed to all Eagle families on Wednesday, April 7).


What municipalities are partially or entirely within the Argyle ISD school boundaries? Argyle, Flower Mound, Denton, Bartonville and Northlake.

Who pays school taxes to Argyle ISD? Any individual property owner that is within the Argyle ISD school boundaries that include Argyle, Flower Mound, Denton, Bartonville and Northlake. The current Argyle ISD tax rate for 2020-2021 is $1.4187, which was approved by the Argyle ISD Board of Trustees in September 2020.

How does Argyle ISD's school budget function? There are two sides to the school district budget - Maintenance & Operations (M&O) and Interest & Sinking (I&S). Maintenance and Operations funds day-to-day costs, such as teacher salaries, supplies, utilities, etc. Interest & Sinking is used to repay debt for longer-term capital improvements approved by voters through bond elections.

Where is the projected Furst Ranch development located? The 2,000-acre development is located in Flower Mound at the intersection of FM 1171 and Highway 377 and is entirely within the Argyle ISD school boundaries.

When will the Furst Ranch zoning change be presented to the Flower Mound Town Council? According to representatives with Furst Ranch, this is expected to be in the fall of 2021.

How can I get more information regarding upcoming Flower Mound Town Council meetings? Visit the Town of Flower Mound website. The next scheduled Flower Mound Planning & Zoning Commission meeting is April 12 at 6:30 p.m. The next Town Council Work Session is April 15 at 6 p.m. These meetings will be held in-person and available via live stream. The meeting videos are archived. Click here for meeting videos.

What is the expected Argyle ISD enrollment impact of Furst Ranch? Over a 10-year period, Argyle ISD expects to see enrollment growth of 3,000-plus students. Argyle ISD could have its first students from this development in the 2024-2025 school year.

How could the commercial development in Furst Ranch impact Argyle ISD? Commercial development could allow the sharing of taxation between the residential property owners and the commercial properties. Currently, Argyle ISD has a 6% commercial taxable value.

Can Argyle ISD redraw school boundaries? Any change in district boundaries would require a de-annexation and annexation process.

What is the process in the de-annexation and annexation of property from one school district to another? Territory may be de-annexed from a school district and annexed to another school district that is contiguous to the de-annexed territory. A petition requesting the de-annexation and annexation must be presented to the board of trustees of the district from which the territory is to be de-annexed and to the board of trustees of the district to which the territory is to be annexed. Each board of trustees to which a petition is required to be presented must conduct a hearing and adopt a resolution for the annexation to be effective. The petition requesting de-annexation and annexation must:

(1) be signed by a majority of:

(A) the registered voters residing in the territory to be de-annexed and annexed, if the territory has residents; or
(B) the surface owners of taxable property in the territory to be de-annexed and annexed, if the territory does not have residents;

(2) give the metes and bounds of the territory to be de-annexed and annexed.


Argyle ISD will continue to keep families informed of additional timely important information regarding Furst Ranch as it becomes available. If you have any questions, please email Communications@ArgyleISD.com.
