STAAR Testing Information Reminder
During the spring semester, campuses are required to administer STAAR assessments (State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness) in grades 3-5. Please be aware that on all STAAR assessment days, our campus will be a closed campus. These tests are an important measure of our students' mastery level of the required grade level Texas Essential Knowledge & Skills (TEKS). We ask your assistance in ensuring productive testing days for your children.
No visitors will be allowed on campus for lunch, to volunteer, etc., in any grade level on STAAR assessment days. Test security and an optimal assessment environment are high priorities for the state, our district, and our campus. The spring STAAR assessment dates are as follows:
Tuesday, April 1 (4th grade writing)
Wednesday, April 2 (4th grade writing)
Tuesday, April 22 (3rd grade math; 4th grade math)
Wednesday, April 23 (3rd grade reading; 4th grade reading)
If you were planning on bringing birthday cupcakes/cookies for a birthday on any of the above dates for your child, treats may be dropped off at the front office or sent to school with your child.
If at all possible, we are also requesting that there be no early checkouts for grades 3 and 4 on any STAAR assessment days. We want each and every student not to feel rushed, in order to perform at their very best. We know you have the same goals, and we appreciate your support.
We would like for STAAR assessment days to be successful for each and every student. The staff at Whitley Road Elementary is committed to providing a school environment that contributes to high levels of performance each day. Thank you for your support in helping us ensure the best possible assessment environment for our students.
