Katy ISD parents and community members are invited to attend an upcoming orientation to learn more about the new State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness (STAAR) test that replaces TAKS for grades 3-8, and beginning 9th grade students this year. The orientation will help parents and community members better understand what to expect with STAAR.
The STAAR orientation date is scheduled for Thursday, November 3 at the Cinco Ranch High School Performing Arts Center, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Click here to print a flyer for the event.
The new STAAR grade 3-8 assessments will be administered in the same grades and subjects as TAKS. Grades 3-8 will be assessed in mathematics and reading, with writing assessments in grades 4 and 7; science assessments in grades 5 and 8; and social studies assessments in grade 8. Entering 9th grade students this fall (class of 2015) are required to take 12 STAAR end-of-course assessments.
More information about the STAAR test can be found on the Katy ISD website at www.KatyISD.org/STAAR.
