San Antonio ISD WELCOMES YOU TO STAAR™


In spring 2012, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR®) replaced the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS). The STAAR program includes annual assessments for grades 3–8 in reading and mathematics; assessments in writing at grades 4 and 7; in science at grades 5 and 8; and in social studies at grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, English II,  Algebra I, biology and U.S history.  Additionally, STAAR EOC assessments for English III and Algebra II will be administered on a voluntary basis beginning in spring 2016.

The Additional Resources tab provides links to other materials that will further acquaint you with the STAAR testing system and its requirements. You can also contact your child’s school counselors for more information.
