    Parents/Guardians: Please note that testing days are like no other at school.  To comply with state and local policies, we must maintain a secure testing environment at all times.  To help you understand the requirements, here are the guidelines used on testing days:

    • The school is considered in a "testing environment" until all tests have been submitted and teachers have been instructed to release the students.  Test security procedures are in place this entire time and do not end when an individual student and/or classroom has completed testing.

    • Students may not have cell phones in their possession when we are in a testing environment. This is a TEA/College Board requirement.  Watches that function as communication devices (such as an Apple Watch) have the same restrictions and rules as cell phones.  Students may leave them at home or with their teacher.  Violations of this policy may result in their test being invalidated as well as being subject to school discipline.

    • Students will not be released early from the testing room until the end of the scheduled testing; we want all students to have adequate time to pace themselves and not feel rushed.  Students leaving early cause disruptions to other students so please refrain from picking up your student early on testing days.  Test day bell schedules will be sent to students via email.

    • Visitors are not allowed in secure testing areas, including hallways or other areas where students who are testing may be located.  Therefore, no visitors will be admitted on campus throughout the testing day.

    • Due to a variety of circumstances, we may have students testing at all times during the school day.  Therefore, the campus testing rules can remain in effect all day.

    If a student is unable to participate in the Spring 2024 administration, the next opportunity will be in the summer of 2024 (June 18-20).

    Questions about STAAR/EOC administration can be sent to LTHS Testing Coordinator, Mrs. Jen McNiel.


    Please see this information on the district webpage regarding reporting of Spring STAAR/EOC Scores.

     

    Summer STAAR/EOC Exam Dates:

    • June 18-20, 2024 at LTMS (LTHS is closed this summer due to construction/renovations)

    Students will be able to take up to two exams in one day if needed. Students will be emailed in early June if they are eligible to participate in make-up or retesting for Summer STAAR/EOC exams.  They will be sent a google form to sign up for testing dates and times - the form will close at 11:59 pm June 16th. 

    Students will need to bring their LTISD issued chromebook and charger to use for testing. STAAR assessments can NOT be taken on a personal computer or tablet. Please make sure to charge chromebooks prior to arriving to school.
