    2013-2014 Promotion Standards

    promotion standards
    In order for HISD students to move to the next grade level, they must show that they have reached HISD’s “Promotion Standards” - what the State of Texas requires of all public school children. These standards generally include classroom grades and a local or state test.
     
     Grade Level Promotion Standards
     1 and 2 
    • Students must pass High Frequency Word Test – Recognizing and reading words that appear very often in written and spoken language.
    • State requirement of overall yearly average of 70 or above and local requirement of an average of 70 or above in reading/language arts, mathematics, and science or social studies.
    • Students must have sufficient attendance*
     3, 4, and 5 
    • Students must pass STAAR (State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness) in reading and math.
    • State requirement of overall yearly average of 70 or above and local requirement of an average of 70 or above in reading, other language arts, mathematics, and science or social studies.
    • Students must have sufficient attendance*
     
    In addition to local and state promotion requirements, the Texas Legislature created The Student Success Initiative (SSI) to ensure that students receive the instruction and support they need to be academically successful in reading and mathematics. Under SSI, students in 5th and 8th grade must pass the STAAR reading and math tests.
