Hello Wildcats! On Monday, April 12th, our 4th Grade Students will be taking their STAAR Writing test. Parents/Guardians, please help us ensure the best possible testing experience by making sure your child gets a good night’s rest, he/she eats breakfast (either at home or school), and arrives to school on time. We cannot thank you enough for your continued support.

Good afternoon! According to TEA and the testing vendor, online testing was set to resume again this morning. Our 4th and 7th grade students were prepared to start their Writing STAAR tests, as were our high school students set to take the English I EOC. Thankfully, we were able to complete the English I EOC for our high school students today. Unfortunately, we experienced connectivity issues once again with the 4th and 7th grade tests. Less than 10 students were able to complete their 7th grade writing test, and we did not have any 4th graders who were able to answer questions. We are aware that some other districts in our area experienced similar issues, while others were able to complete their testing. We had been in contact with the testing vendor to try and resolve these issues, but made the decision to dismiss 4th and 7th graders experiencing difficulties from their testing rooms today around 10:00 am. Normal instruction resumed for them. At this time, we feel as though our students in 4th and 7th grade have been through enough this week in regards to their testing attempts. We have decided to wait until next week to try again. Hopefully, this will allow enough time for the vendor to work out the testing platform issues and more importantly, allow our students a break from the frustrations this has caused. We could not be prouder of how our students have handled these unfortunate events. They have remained patient and calm, and we could not ask for more. English II EOC is set to test tomorrow. We plan to move forward with this test and will make adjustments if issues arise. Since English I EOC was able to test today, we anticipate a smooth testing experience for English II EOC. Thank you all for supporting our students!
