2019 Accountability – access your child’s campus report

The district annual performance reports are comprised of the following documents: the state AEIS report, the district AEIS report, a district Criminal and Violent Incident Report, Safe and Drug-Free Schools and Communities Evaluation Findings, an AEIS report for each campus, campus goals for each campus, a Criminal and Violent Incident Report for each campus, TASP summary, and the Glossary/Glosario.

All public school students in Texas, grades 3–12, take STAAR tests.

STAAR is the state’s testing program and is based on state curriculum standards in core subjects including reading, writing, mathematics, science, and social studies.

STAAR tests are given in the spring. The number of tests your child takes each year will depend on what grade he or she is in. Most students will have two to four testing days during the 180-day school year.

STAAR tests are given to students at their own school, in regular classrooms that have been cleared and set up to make it easy to focus on the test. If students have certain special needs and require special accommodations, they may be tested in a different area of the school.

STAAR tests are designed to measure what students are learning in each grade and whether or not they are ready for the next grade. The goal is to ensure that all students receive what they need to be academically successful. Meeting these individual student needs depends greatly on schools, parents, and community members working together.

STAAR tests for grades 3–8 and EOC are offered in both online and paper formats.
