Spring Break

Upcoming Testing

TeSA Families,

We use a variety of assessment methods throughout the year to monitor students’ growth. As we near the end of the year, our students will be completing their End-Of-Year (EOY) assessments in MAP (K-5th), TX-KEA (K), and TPRI (1st-2nd). All reports will be distributed to parents once available and will be reviewed by our TeSA teachers next year to help plan for any learning gaps for all of our returning students.

Additionally, our 3rd-5th grade students will be participating in STAAR. You can see the schedule below. We are required to have a closed-campus on STAAR dates, which means families will not be allowed to volunteer or eat lunch with their students on testing days. STAAR results will not be available until after the school year concludes, and more information on how to obtain the scores will be sent closer to that time.

The STAAR Redesign Resources for Parents webpage includes curated information about STAAR developed especially for parents. This new webpage hosts flyers, short videos, and FAQs. We highly recommend all 3rd-5th grade families at least read the What Families Should Know About STAAR one-page document for a better understanding of the test and the testing process.

If you have any testing questions, please contact our District Testing Coordinator, Julie Murray, at julie.murray@mytesa.org.
