Important Changes to STAAR Reporting Dates
In a letter from TEA, GPISD and other Texas school districts were informed that the new date for release of STAAR scores for students in grades 3-8 will be July 5. Parents will begin receiving information from GPISD on Monday, July 11.
As a result of ongoing reporting issues with the state’s testing vendor, Commissioner of Education Mike Morath announced today that the state will be removing student consequences attached to State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) for fifth and eighth-grade students for the 2015-2016 school year. He also cancelled the June 21-22 fifth and eighth-grade retest administration. View full press release from TEA.
As a result of the decision, Thursday, June 16 will be the last day of SSI summer school at Seguin Elementary and Jackson Middle School.
