With STAAR testing around the corner, the Office of Communications is making available parent communication resources: a STAAR Fact Sheet with testing and retesting dates and an FAQ that addresses promotion standards and opting out. Both documents are available in English, Spanish, Vietnamese, and Arabic.
Note: Changes to the performance levels included in the STAAR results parents will receive are set to be released by the TEA in the coming days. When parents recieve STAAR results, they will look different, with levels changing from Unsatisfactory, Satisfactory, and Advanced to Below Grade Level, Approaches or Meets Standards, and Masters. We will provide additional parent communications when these changes are finalized and released by the TEA.
