STAAR Information

  • Students participated in the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR)/End of Course (EOC) exams this past spring. Federal and state laws require that all students participate in summative assessments in grades 3-8 and in specific high school courses. Your child's STAAR score provides you with the assurance that he/she is prepared to enter the next grade level through the student's mastery of the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) for a given course and determines college and career readiness at the high school level. The results also provide educators and administrators with uniform information about where to focus resources and instruction to meet the needs of each student, especially in the core subjects being taught for the following school year.

     

    This year, the STAAR/EOC was redesigned to better align with classroom instruction and to allow students to better demonstrate their learning. Due to the redesign, the Texas Education Agency delayed reporting of final test results for the spring STAAR.

     

    • For students who participated in STAAR for grades 3-8:
      Spring 2024 STAAR results will be available via the state's online Family Portal on June 14th. Please note that your child's 2023 scores will be displayed if you access the Family Portal before this date. Additionally, because they were first-time test takers, scores for third-grade students will not be displayed before June 14th.

     

    • For students who participated in STAAR EOC English I, English II, Algebra I, Biology, and/or U.S. History:
      Spring 2024 STAAR EOC results will be available via the state's online Family Portal on June 4th.

     

    • For Emergent Bilingual students (English Language Learners):
      TELPAS results are currently available via the state's online Family Portal.
