    Attention: Parents of 2021-2022 Grade 5 students who were administered the STAAR Math Paper assessment in English

     

    The Texas Education Agency notified the district that one question was scored incorrectly on the STAAR Grade 5 Math paper test (English version), resulting in a score change for some students. The updated test scores are available in the Family Portal on TexasAssessment.gov.  In the Family Portal, parents can access any updated STAAR test results, the questions your child answered correctly or incorrectly, and additional parent resources to support your child’s progress.
