There are a number of school events taking place! Communicating all the activities and assessments occurring during the spring is always a challenge. The first round of testing for juniors begins on March 4th with the Exit Level TAKS English Language Arts Assessment. This is the same day that the campuses will have Open House.
High School Math Tutorials
Math Tutorials are available for high school students on Monday and Wednesday in the high school computer lab. Mrs. Kuwahara is providing extra help on these days to any high school math student. Mrs. Wausson is providing a structured TAKS Math tutorial for students on Tuesday and Thursday after school. Mrs. Wausson has structured this tutorial to target TAKS Math objectives so students will pass the assessment. Parents received a letter if their student has been asked to attend. Students notified must attend.

5th and 8th Grade Students are Required to Pass State Assessment for Promotion
Student Success Initiative (SSI) regulations currently state that students in 5th and 8th grade must “pass” the reading and math portion of the STAAR assessment to promote to the next grade. 5th and 8th graders have three opportunities to meet requirements on state assessment. If a student fails the first two administrations of either assessment, the student will be required to attend Accelerate Instruction in the summer. If a student fails the first two administrations and doesn't attend accelerated instruction (summer school) then the grade placement committee must retain the student if the student fails the third administration.
