Brittany's Corner

Welcome back, everyone! I hope you all had a fun, relaxing, and adventurous spring break!

STAAR Stuff - Please read carefully
  • STAAR Manuals - If you have not done so already, you need to be reading this thoroughly. If you do not have a manual, you can find the online version on the TEA website.
  • Rosters - I will be emailing each of you your roster for testing day including testing accommodations and test type, please ensure they are accurate.
  • Supplemental aids - All supplemental aids for 504 and SPED students need to be turned into me by FRIDAY. If a student writes on the SA, it has to be destroyed, so you may want to give me a copy rather than the original.
  • STAAR day schedule will be emailed out this week as well.
  • 4th and 5th grade teachers - I will hang a sign-up sheet outside my office. Please sign up for a check-out a time the morning of the STAAR test.
  • Prepare rooms - By the end of the week, you will want to make sure your walls are covered or free of materials that would aid students during the test. Please also ensure the hallways are clear of instructional materials. Wood and I will do a walk-through next Monday to check rooms.
  • Timer - If you are planning on using a timer on your computer, please use this one:
  • STAAR A/STAAR L - SUPER IMPORTANT - make sure your students taking these types of tests are utilizing the online tutorials. We want them to be familiar with this prior to STAAR day.

Any questions? Please let me know!
