STAAR Summer Administration:
We sent home letters to inform parents and students of their performance on this year STAAR test. If you see the designation
“Did Not Pass” next to a test name, this means your student must retest in June.

STAAR  Retest Date
Algebra STAAR: Thursday, June 28 @ 7:30am
Biology STAAR: Tuesday, June 26 @ 7:30am
English I STAAR: Monday, June 25 @ 7:30am
English II STAAR:  Wednesday, June 27 @ 7:30am

Because passing STAAR scores are a high school graduation requirement, it is important that your
student works to remediate and prepare for the upcoming STAAR. Students will be provided with a
practice packet before the end of the week.
If you have any questions about the STAAR Results or what you can do to support your student, please
contact Mrs. Crandall @ jessie.crandall@yesprep.org or call the campus at 281-591-3780.
