HS ~ EOC in May
Dear Students and Parent/Guardians,
End of Course (STAAR) testing for Algebra will be May 2nd, US History May 3rd, and Biology May 4th.
NOTE: Times below and schedule are DIFFERENT for May testing.
Any student who has previously failed one or more of these tests will also be required to test on these days. Those students have been notified. Please remember passing scores on these tests are required for graduation.
In order to provide a quiet testing atmosphere and the personnel needed for those testing, we have a plan that has been very successful in the past years. The state allows schools to have late arrival for non-testing students on May 2nd – May 4th.
Students must comply with the following guidelines each time this occurs or we will cancel this procedure and all students will come to school for the full days during the testing days in May. All required testers must be in attendance to test.
- Non-Testing students must be on campus by 11:30 AM on the designated EOC testing days.
The busses will run a second to pick up students for school. The same routes and stops will be used. Transportation asks that students are ready for pick up at 11:00 AM.
We must maintain our regular attendance rate. Attendance on these days is NOT an option.
Attendance in the afternoon counts for ALL class periods. This will impact final exam exemptions for all class periods if a student does not come to school and is counted absent.
Students who arrive prior to 11:00 AM will remain in the cafeteria until the completion of testing.
ALL non-testing students will report to the cafeteria when they arrive. Lunch will be available at for non-testing students @ 11:00 AM.
Once testing/lunch is complete, students will attend classes on the following schedule.
Tuesday, May 2nd -- 1st and 3rd period
Wednesday May 3rd --2nd, and 4th periods
Thursday, May 4th -- 5th, 6th and 7th periods
Dual Credit will still attend classes according to their schedule and then report to campus by 11:30 AM.
All students required to test must report to campus on the designated testing date even if in a dual credit course!! Any absence will count against the student just as if it was a regular school day.
Thank you for helping us to provide an optimal testing environment by making sure non-testing students attend school in the afternoons.
