STAAR Testing Dates

The State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) will be administered again this spring 2018. The STAAR measures the statewide curriculum in Reading at Grades 3-5; Math at Grades 3-5; in Writing at Grade 4; and in Science at Grade 5.

Students in grades 3-5 will be participating in the STAAR Test in 2018 using the following schedule:

April 10 Math 5th, Writing 4th

April 11 Reading 5th


May 14 Math 5th(retest), Math 3rd & 4th

May 15 Reading 5th (retest), Reading 3rd & 4th

May 16 Science 5th

Please ensure that your child is present and on time to take his/her test. To that end, please make every effort to schedule doctor appointments and other school absences on NON-test days. We also ask that all parents refrain from visiting their children (especially for lunch) during testing.

As you are probably aware, the Student Success Initiative (SSI) requires that Grade 5 students must meet the passing standard on the STAAR in reading and mathematics before they can be promoted to the next grade level.
