STAAR Letter-HSI


 

Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s):
STAAR testing will start soon. Although this school year has been challenging, we are confident our students are ready and have the skills necessary to be successful on the STAAR tests.

The State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAARTM) is a state mandated test that measures students’
mastery of the statewide curriculum at various grade levels in elementary, middle school, and high school. STAAR End of Course (EOC) tests are administered to students enrolled in the following high school classes: Algebra I, Biology, English I, English II, and U.S. History. All students currently enrolled in these courses as well as students who need to retake exams are required to participate in this testing. Satisfactory performance on each STAAR EOC test is a prerequisite for a high school diploma.

To ensure equity for all students, The Texas Education Agency (TEA) is requiring all students to take STAAR in a monitored testing session at school supervised by a trained test administrator. Appropriate public health protocols will be followed during all testing administrations.  To safeguard your child’s success on STAAR, please do the following: make sure your child arrives on time to school after a good night’s rest; is prepared to test; and eats a good dinner the night before and a good breakfast the morning of testing. Similarly, encouraging your child to do his or her personal best can greatly improve your child’s self-confidence which will lead to better performance. All testing materials will be provided by the school. We do urge students to bring a snack to eat during the test.

Following are the dates for the upcoming Spring 2021 STAAR and STAAR EOC exams.

As a reminder, the campus will be closed to all visitors, including parents, on testing days. This includes lunch drop offs.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding.
If your child’s method of instruction is Virtual Learning, please take this survey [survey link] to inform us whether your child will come to school to take the STAAR assessment.
If you have any questions or concerns about testing, please do not hesitate to contact me at dvaldivia@harmonytx.org/(915) 757-2929.
Sincerely,
Desiree Valdivia
Testing & Federal Programs Coordinator


Estimados padres /guardianes
Las pruebas de STAAR comenzarán pronto. Aunque este año escolar ha sido difícil, estamos seguros de que nuestros
estudiantes están listos y tienen las habilidades necesarias para tener éxito en las pruebas de STAAR.
“STAAR” es un acrónimo en inglés que significa “Las Evaluaciones de Preparación Académica del Estado de Texas”. Las
pruebas de STAAR son pruebas obligatorias del estado que mide el nivel de dominio el estudiante tiene sobre el plan de estudios estatal en varios niveles entre la primaria, secundaria y preparatoria. Los exámenes de STAAR de fin de curso (EOC) se administran a los estudiantes inscritos en las siguientes clases de la escuela secundaria: Álgebra I, Biología, Inglés I, Inglés II y Historia de EE. UU. Todos los estudiantes actualmente inscritos en estos cursos, así como los estudiantes que necesitan volver a tomar exámenes, deben participar en esta prueba. El cumplimiento de nivel
“satisfactorio” en cada prueba STAAR EOC es un requisito para obtener una diploma de la escuela secundaria.
Para garantizar la equidad para todos los estudiantes, la Agencia de Educación de Texas (TEA) requiere que todos los
estudiantes tomen las pruebas de STAAR personalmente en la escuela supervisada por un administrador capacitado
sobre las pautas de las pruebas . Se seguirán los protocolos de salud pública apropiados durante todas las
administraciones de pruebas.
Para asegurar el éxito de su hijo(a) en STAAR, haga lo siguiente: asegúrese de que su hijo(a) llegue a tiempo a la escuela después de una buena noche de descanso; está preparado(a) para tomar la prueba; y come una buena cena la noche anterior y un buen desayuno la mañana de la prueba. De manera similar, el animar a su hijo a que haga lo mejor que pueda, puede mejorar en gran medida la confianza en sí mismo(a) de su hijo(a), lo que conducirá a un mejor desempeño.
Todos los materiales de prueba serán proporcionados por la escuela. Recomendamos a los estudiantes que traigan una botana sencilla para comer durante la prueba.

Las siguientes son las fechas para los próximos exámenes STAAR y STAAR EOC de primavera de 2021.

Como recordatorio, durante los días de exámenes, la escuela estará cerrada a todos los visitantes, incluidos los padres.
Esto incluye la entrega del almuerzo. Gracias de antemano por su cooperación y comprensión.
Si el método de instrucción de su hijo ha sido virtual durante el año, responda esta encuesta [enlace de la encuesta] para informarnos si su hijo vendrá a la escuela para realizar las pruebas de STAAR.
Si tiene alguna pregunta o inquietud acerca de las pruebas, no dude en comunicarse conmigo al
dvaldivia@harmonytx.org/ (915) 757-2929.
Atentamente,
Desiree Valdivia
Coordinadora de Pruebas y Programas Federales

Thank you,

¡Buen día, familia Harmony!

Este correo electrónico es para informarle que todos los maestros actualizarán sus enlaces de zoom durante el fin de semana.
