STAAR, SAT, ACT, AP, and TSIA Testing Updates

STAAR EOC Cancelled for Spring 2020 & Summer 2020

Due to COVID-19, Governor Greg Abbott has suspended all annual academic assessment requirements for the remainder of the 2019–2020 school year. Students who are competing instruction in the entire curriculum in spring 2020 for a course that has a corresponding STAAR EOC assessment, the student is not required to pass that specific test to fulfill graduation requirements.

If a student is on schedule to complete graduation requirements in spring 2020 but does not have the opportunity to retake a STAAR EOC assessment prior to graduation, the student is not required to pass that specific test to fulfill graduation requirements but will need to complete the IGC process. For students graduating in future years but taking one of the five courses with a corresponding STAAR EOC assessment this year, those students will not be responsible for meeting that EOC assessment graduation requirement if they earn course credit this year.

For students who are still working to meet assessment graduation requirements as seniors in the 2019–2020 school year, required performance on academic assessments to graduate under TEC, §28.025(c) and §39.025(a) are being waived for spring 2020. Effectively, this means that current seniors may graduate through the IGC process regardless of the number of EOC assessments they still need to pass.

Katy ISD will determine if a student has met all other graduation requirements under TEC, §28.025(c), including successfully completing curriculum requirements or successfully completing an individualized education program.

*Note: A student is considered "eligible to test" if they have taken an assessment and not yet passed, if they have completed the course and haven't yet tested, were absent for testing during the school year, or went home ill during testing and were unable to complete the test.

TSI Assessment at PHS

Paetow High School hosted the TSIA (Texas Success Initiative Assessment) for seniors February 18th and 19th, 2020.

WHAT IS IT?

The TSIA is a college readiness exam offered by College Board and the state of Texas to help students entering college.  It allows a student who did not make a "college-readiness" score on the SAT/ACT to take this exam and enter college taking on-level math and reading courses without having to take a remedial course if they receive a passing score.

REGISTRATION?

PHS is not currently accepting registrations.
