• Socorro ISD 2021 STAAR/EOC Information

    All districts in Texas are required to offer the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR®), for grades 3-8 and high school End-of-Course (EOC) assessments this year. Logistical constraints prevent the State of Texas from administering these assessments in remote or at-home settings. Therefore, in order to participate, a student must be physically present at school.

    We recognize that, as parents, some of you may still feel that for health reasons coming onsite to test is not a viable option. In that case, we respect your decision to continue to participate in remote instruction, recognizing that in making that decision, your child will not participate in the STAAR or EOC assessments.

    The Socorro Independent School District is committed to Keep SISD Safe, providing the safest environment possible for students and staff on our campuses.

    The data from tests like STAAR and EOC can help us identify learning gaps and evaluate the impact of the pandemic on student learning. In an effort to inform student learning and instructional practices, we would like to offer the opportunity, for all students that qualify, to participate in the STAAR/EOC assessments.

    Implications Grades 3-8

    Please be assured that not participating in a STAAR assessment in grades 3-8 does not affect promotion or retention decisions as the TEA has waived all state-mandated consequences for students associated with not taking the assessment.

    Implications High School Level Courses

    Please know that not participating in EOC assessments for high school level courses does have implications for students since, under current law, students are required to perform successfully on EOCs to meet graduation requirements. Although many students may have future opportunities to take EOCs prior to graduation, we believe that it is important for students to participate in EOCs at the conclusion of the corresponding course.

    More information will be coming from your child’s campus regarding details for participating in STAAR and EOC assessments this spring. Please reach out to campus staff if you have any questions regarding spring testing.

    Información 2021 de Socorro ISD STAAR/EOC 

    Todos los distritos de Texas deben ofrecer las Evaluaciones de preparación académica del estado de Texas (STAAR®), para los grados 3-8 y las evaluaciones de fin de curso (EOC) de preparatoria. Sin embargo, las limitaciones logísticas impiden que el estado de Texas administre estas evaluaciones en entornos remotos o en el hogar. Por lo tanto, para poder participar, el alumno debe estar presencialmente en la escuela.

    Reconocemos que, como padres, algunos de ustedes todavía pueden sentir que, por razones de salud, acudir a las instalaciones para realizar la prueba no es una opción viable. En ese caso, respetamos su decisión de continuar participando en la instrucción remota, reconociendo que, al tomar esa decisión, su hijo/a no participará en las evaluaciones STAAR o EOC.

    El Distrito Escolar Independiente de Socorro se compromete a mantener la seguridad de SISD y proporcionar el entorno más seguro posible para los estudiantes y el personal en nuestras escuelas.

    Los resultados de pruebas como STAAR y EOC pueden ayudarnos a identificar deficiencias de aprendizaje y evaluar el impacto de la pandemia en el aprendizaje de los estudiantes. En un esfuerzo por informar el aprendizaje de los estudiantes y las prácticas de enseñanza, ofreceremos la oportunidad, para que todos los estudiantes que califiquen participen en las evaluaciones STAAR / EOC.

    Implicaciones Grados 3-8

    Tenga la seguridad de que no participar en una evaluación STAAR en los grados 3-8 no afecta las decisiones de promoción o retención, ya que TEA ha renunciado a todas las consecuencias exigidas por el estado para los estudiantes asociados con no tomar la evaluación.

    Implicaciones Cursos de nivel preparatoria

    Tenga en cuenta que no participar en las evaluaciones EOC para cursos de nivel preparatoria si tiene implicaciones para los estudiantes ya que, según la ley actual, los estudiantes deben desempeñarse con éxito las evaluaciones de fin de curso EOC para cumplir con los requisitos de graduación. Aunque muchos estudiantes pueden tener oportunidades futuras de tomar EOC antes de la graduación, creemos que es importante que los estudiantes participen en EOC al finalizar el curso correspondiente.

    Mas información vendrá de la escuela de su hijo/a con respecto a los detalles para participar en las evaluaciones STAAR y EOC esta primavera. Comuníquese con el personal de la escuela si tiene alguna pregunta sobre las pruebas de primavera.
