UPDATE: Spring 2021 STAAR EOC
Unlike the spring of 2020, the Texas Education Agency (TEA) will not be waiving the STAAR EOC requirement for students currently enrolled in an EOC course (listed below.) While Austin ISD has committed to offering remote learning to families for the entire school year, TEA guidelines require schools to administer the EOC on-site. Knowing that students' best chance for success on the EOC is at the time they are enrolled in the course and receiving instruction, it is our goal for able students to test on campus. Safety measures will be in place for test administration including masks, social distancing where feasible, and easily available handwashing and sanitizing stations.
Students who do not come to campus to take the EOC exam on the dates indicated below will be required to take a make-up EOC exam in a set window on the exam schedule released annually, prior to the student’s graduation. More information about these testing days will be provided as we get closer to the test administration dates for this year.
April 20 - English 1 (all 9th-grade students, students needing to retest/make-up)
April 22 - English 2 (all 10th-grade students, students needing to retest/make-up)
May 19 - Biology (all 9th-grade students, students needing to retest/make-up)
May 20 - U.S. History (all 11th-grade students, students needing to retest/make-up)
May 21 - Algebra 1 (many 9th grade students, students needing to retest/make-up)
May 24 - EOC Make-up Exam Administration and TSI Exams
NOTE: Students who are not involved in STAAR EOC testing will have remote asynchronous learning days on the dates listed above.
