Parents, attached is a letter based upon the Texas Education Agency's recent decision to cancel the June STAAR exam for fifth and eighth grade students.
The Texas Commissioner of Education recently announced the cancellation of the June STAAR Student Success Initiative (SSI) test administration for grades 5 and 8 due to ongoing reporting issues with the state's testing vendor.
STAAR SSI rules, including the retention of students who have not passed the STAAR test, have been suspended for 2015-2016 school year.
If your child is attending summer school as a result of 1) not passing academic courses on his/her report card, 2) attendance issues, or 3) participation in Extended School Year, and End of Course (High School), please note that summer school is still required.
For additional information call (361) 256-3003 or your child’s summer school principal.
Adell L. Cueva, Superintendent
