Beginning in spring 2012, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR™) replaced the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS). The STAAR program at grades 3–8 assesses the same subjects and grades that were assessed on TAKS. At high school, however, grade-specific assessments were replaced with 5 end-of-course (EOC) assessments: Algebra I, Biology, English I, English II, and U.S. history.Confidential student information cannot be shared over the phone, but parents may contact their campus principal to arrange for a conference to discuss their child’s results. Questions related to STAAR may be directed to Gabi Niño, GISD Director of Assessment & Feedback at (512) 943-5000, ext. 6015.
