The new statute is effective, as of June 16, 2021, with accelerated instruction practices required during the 2021-2022 school year for all students, based on results from Spring 2021.

Katy ISD District Learning Assessments (DLAs)
DLAs are common formative assessments designed to gather evidence of student learning. As part of a balanced program, DLAs are not intended to be the sole assessment instrument in determining student learning. Rather, they provide teachers and students with diagnostic information to help guide the learning process.
Additional information about the DLAs can be found in the District Learning Assessment FAQs and in the District Learning Assessment Guidelines.
The secondary DLA administration calendar. For more specific administration dates, please contact your child's teacher(s).
