Special Education Parent Corner

  • TEA Commissioner Morath announced recently that STAAR re-testing for the purposes of the Student Success Initiative (SSI) for grades 5 and 8 are cancelled this year due to concerns about the vendor that developed and administered the STAAR tests. 

    See Commissioner Morath's announcement here. 

    Special Education will be hosting parent meetings on the district's STAAR results for the 16-17 school year when more information is provided from the TEA. 

    The Texas Education Agency is constantly updating their state mandated assessment resources.
