2019 May STAAR Administrations

The State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) is a series of state-mandated standardized tests used in Texas schools to assess a student’s achievements and knowledge learned in the grade level or course.

No campus visitations or guests at HSA Lubbock on STAAR testing days or on the STAAR makeup testing days.

Please refrain from making any lunch deliveries on STAAR testing days.

Parents, you may help your student by ensuring that they have plenty of rest the night before they are scheduled to test, eat a well-balanced breakfast the morning of testing, Cell Phone Policy- According to TEA students are not permitted to have cell phones or other electronic devices on their person or within reach during STAAR testing. If the student has a cell phone it must be turned off and turned in to the teacher to be placed in a cabinet until after testing. Cell phone usage during testing is a serious violation and will be considered cheating.

Dear Parent(s):

STAAR testing time has come. In April 9 and 10, our 4th, 5th, 7th and 8th grade students will take the STAAR tests. We are confident that our students are ready. Students and teachers alike have been working rigorously since the beginning of the school year to master the skills needed to be successful on the STAAR tests.

The State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR™) is a state mandated test that measures the statewide curriculum in reading at Grades 3-8; in writing at Grades 4 and 7; in mathematics at Grades 3-8; in science at Grades 5, 8; and social studies at Grades 8. Furthermore, STAAR End of Course (EOC) tests are administered to students enrolled in Algebra I class. All students enrolled in those courses are REQUIRED to participate in this testing.

Attendance is critical on these days. Please ensure your child gets enough sleep the night before. Breakfast will be served as usual so please, get them to school in time to eat breakfast or feel free to provide breakfast on your own. Visitors will not be permitted on STAAR Testing week and if possible, please try to reschedule any doctor’s appointments. State Law prohibits the use of any electronic devices on test days.

Please visit with you child and stress the importance of the mandated STAAR assessment and encourage them to their best.

Satisfactory performance on STAAR tests is a prerequisite to grade promotion in grades 5&8 Math & Reading and satisfactory performance on the STAAR EOC tests is prerequisite to a high school diploma.

Thank you.

You asked! We changed!

You’re invited to take our website survey to find out if the new website is meeting your needs.

During the last few months, we’ve been working to revamp our campus websites based on the feedback we received from focus groups, and online user surveys. Your feedback was critical because it helped us understand why people visit our websites and what they are trying to achieve once they get there.

It’s easy to take part in the survey and should take no longer than 5 minutes to complete!

We take your feedback very seriously, and want to provide parents with a valuable resource. If one of your favorite features from the old site is missing: let us know… (Gently – remember the Golden Rule!)
