STAAR Testing Updates

Here are a few "head-up" items as we prep for STAAR testing on the 9th & 10th. 4th and 5th grade will be testing, but we know this impacts EVERYONE.

  • Test Administrators - Please look this week, and ensure that you have enough dictionaries for the 1 per 5 learners ration.
  • Instructional Materials in Testing Rooms and Hallways will need to be covered by the end of the day Friday (April 5th). Jordan and I will be around that afternoon and Monday to check them.
  • We will not have Specials on Tuesday, April 9th, because Specials teachers will be involved in testing.
  • Please alert volunteers, parents, etc that we will have a closed campus on the 9th and 10th. We will have a parent email go out with that information, but I am asking that you pass that information along as well. Also, no clubs will meet on those 2 days as well.
