LCMS Weekly Newsletter

By Tami Gunset

Parents,

I hope you had a great Easter weekend. On TUESDAY, seventh graders will be taking the STAAR Writing exam. I am excited to see your student's hard work pay off on this state assessment. The staff and students have worked extremely hard and I am very proud of each and every one of them.


*** Students will need to bring their district provided iPad FULLY charged. STAAR will be given online, so it is extremely important that students are responsible about bringing their iPads to school with a full charge.


Tuesday, April 6, 2021

  • 7th grade Writing STAAR


  • 6th and 8th grade will be expected to participate in at-home, virtual learning (using your child's assigned district iPad).

Virtual AND Testing Dates for Middle School Students

On each testing date, some grade levels will test while others will be expected to participate in virtual learning from home.


If students are TESTING, students will be expected to be on-campus for the entire school day. If students are NOT TESTING, students will be expected to participate in at-home virtual learning (using your child's assigned district iPad).

Semester Final Exemption Criteria

Due to STAAR testing being so late in the semester, we will implement exemptions for the second semester.


In order to exempt a final, a student must have at least a 75 average for the semester and meet the following attendance requirements:

  • No more than three tardies in any one period (If the class is double-blocked, students cannot have five or more tardies for any one period to be eligible for an exemption)

  • No more than three absences in any one period of the class the student wants to exempt (If the class is double-blocked, students cannot have five or more absences for any one period to be eligible for an exemption)

  • Perfect attendance exemptions can be used for a class with a 70 average or above, as long as the student has met attendance requirements

  • Through unit assessment data, students must show progress through the spring semester

  • Library and Cafeteria fines need to be reconciled before exemptions can be signed for academics

2019-20 School Report Card for LCMS

Please see the attached documents regarding the 2019-20 School Report Card for Lubbock-Cooper Middle School.


The purpose of the SRC is to inform parents and guardians about a campus’ individual characteristics and its academic performance. Due to COVID-19, all campuses and districts received a label of Not Rated: Declared State of Disaster for the 2019–20 school year. Therefore, several data points have not been updated, including STAAR® and academic growth data.
