* A parent/LC/CT/guardian MUST sign their student in with a photo id. A student can NOT sign his/her self in (unless s/he is a student driver with an approved permission form.)

* Students should bring: #2 pencils, a snack and/or lunch, bottled water, and a book to read when your student completes testing. Please make sure your student’s food and belongings are marked with his or her name.

* Candy is not a good lunch option. Candy brought as a “meal” will be collected and returned at the end of the day. You may bring a few mints, however!

* We will provide dictionaries, thesauri, and graphing calculators for tests allowing these items.

* NO electronic devices allowed — this includes cell phones, MP3s, I Pods, E-readers or tablets, gaming devices, calculators, etc. If a student arrives with these, we MUST confiscate them.

***Cell phones must be left at home.

* If a student is found with an electronic device after testing has begun, his or her test may be invalidated.

* Students may not speak out or leave their seats during testing without permission – students are encouraged to raise their hand to ask for help with directions. Students may also ask for a water, restroom, or snack break by raising their hand.

* Test time for STAAR and EOC testers is approximately from 9:30 a.m.– 2:30 p.m. Dismissal times are at lunch break or at the end of testing day.

* Please be aware of all test dates for your student(s). TCAH students are required to attend all testing in order to maintain enrollment in our school.

The letter...

This letter has been making its way around Facebook lately, and I wanted to share it with you. Please share it with your dedicated, hardworking, smart, kind, talented daughter before they leave for testing. It expresses my sentiments exactly! We are so proud of ALL of the hard work they put in every day!
