Dear Booker Parents/Guardians,

TEAMWORK/ACCOUNTABILITY - We appreciate all you do to support your students and their education. We need your help. We must instill in all our scholars how important it is to take their time during assessments and use their strategies to improve performance. Our scores have dropped considerably. However, we know that this will not be the case for all other assessments. So, let's team up to encourage our Bengals do their BOOKER BEST!


CYCLE 1 - Students in grades 3rd-5th will take the Cycle 1 this week! We need them at school and focused! The assessment is 10 questions over objectives that have been taught and re-taught. It will be taken during the regular subject block and used as a grade. There will be no changes to the schedule.


PLANNING AHEAD: Students have access to practice STAAR/TELPAS tests on the new online assessment system. I have attached the step by step directions sheet HERE. . We have scheduled training dates to review with the students but feel free to start now. It is important that students get familiar with the embedded online tools to help them better access the test.

If you have any questions or need clarification, please feel free to contact me at tdupont@springisd.org.


Regards,

Teresa DuPont, Campus Testing Coordinator
