Conroe ISD Virtual Academy:

Starting this week, students will be participating in the redesigned State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR®). The redesigned STAAR will allow our students to show in different ways what they have learned this year. The assessments for each grade level include:

  • Grade 7 - Reading Language Art & Math
  • Grade 8 - Reading Language Arts, Science, Social Studies, & Math

You can read more about the STAAR tests here: English / Spanish

View our STAAR testing Schedule below.


The CISD Bus Smart tags have been a success. Most students use the tags when loading and unloading our buses daily. To increase the speed at which we can load and unload, please remind your child to have their smart tag out and ready anytime they are loading and unloading buses. By doing this, we believe our buses' on-time performance will improve.

If your child needs a new smart tag, we will print a new tag for two dollars.

For the safety of all students, we will only allow our car rider students to exit in front of the school. Parents, please do not ask your child to violate this expectation. It will take all of us working together to keep our students safe.

Summer School:

Information for Jr. High Summer School for Credit Recovery will be out at the end of April.

We do know that Summer school credit recovery courses will cost $140.00 per course and will run from June 6th to June 29th:

  • Please keep a close eye on grades in Parent Access Center.
  • Have your child at school daily
  • Stay in communication with your child's teacher and counselor.


STAAR camp will take place from June 6th to June 29th. Students that do not meet standard will be selected on space availability.


Pre-Ordered Yearbook distribution will occur Wednesday, May 17th, during 6th period.

For Irons to successfully administer the STAAR assessment, we need all students to attend and arrive at school by 8:50 on the day of the assessments. Any student arriving late will still be required to take the assessment, but we must move the student to an alternate testing room. If your child is absent from testing, they will make up the assessment on the make-up days. You can find more information about the schedule below.
