2019 Spring STAAR Administrations

The State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) is a series of state-mandated standardized tests used in Texas schools to assess a student’s achievements and knowledge learned in the grade level or course. In an effort to create an atmosphere of testing integrity, please note the following information that will affect all students on our campus; No campus visitations or guests at HSA Dallas on STAAR testing days or on the STAAR makeup testing days. Please refrain from making any lunch deliveries on STAAR testing days. Parents, you may help your student by ensuring that they have plenty of rest the night before they are scheduled to test, eat a well-balanced breakfast the morning of testing, Students will be provided a cold lunch on EOC testing days only and remember they can bring a sack lunch on their scheduled testing day. We will break for lunch, but students will eat lunch in their testing rooms on April 9 & 11 only during English I & II testing days. Students will be provided lunch break after testing is over for 7 & 8-grade students. Cell Phone Policy- According to TEA students are not permitted to have cell phones or other electronic devices on their person or within reach during STAAR testing. If the student has a cell phone it must be turned off and turned in to the teacher to be placed in a cabinet until after testing. Cell phone usage during testing is a serious violation and will be considered cheating. Below is a table of grade level assessments and the date on which the assessment will be administered.

In accordance with the Texas Education Code, Section 39.025, the commissioner of education adopts certain assessments that a student may use in place of a corresponding end-of-course (EOC) assessment under the TEC section 39.023(c) to meet the student’s assessment graduation requirements. A satisfactory score on an approved substitute assessment may be used in place of only one specific EOC assessment.

It’s easy to take part in the survey and should take no longer than 5 minutes to complete!

We take your feedback very seriously, and want to provide parents with a valuable resource. If one of your favorite features from the old site is missing: let us know… (Gently – remember the Golden Rule!)
