All state assessments including STAAR, STAAR EOC, STAAR Alternate 2, TELPAS, and TELPAS Alternate will be administered in accordance with the directives of the Texas Education Agency.
TEA has scheduled STAAR EOC assessments in December 2020 and STAAR, STAAR EOC, STAAR Alternate 2, TELPAS, and TELPAS Alternate assessments in Spring 2021. Students must be present at school in order to participate in state assessments.
Additionally, STAAR EOC graduation requirements will apply in 2020-2021.
TEA announced Grade 5 and 8 Student Success Initiative (SSI) grade promotion requirements have been waived for 2020-2021. Students enrolled in grades 5 and 8 are still required to take the appropriate STAAR assessments once in May 2021 but regardless of their score, retests will not be provided. Districts will use local discretion on grade promotion based on local criteria similar to grades 3, 4, 6, and 7. Click here

In light of the unique challenges schools face this year, the Texas Education Agency (TEA) will not issue A–F accountability ratings for the 2020–2021 school year and will seek waivers of aspects of federal accountability requirements.
TEA will process and report all available data from the 2020–2021 school year but will not calculate accountability scores or assign A–F ratings. The underlying student achievement data can then be used by legislative leadership, TEA, and school systems to inform changes moving forward and otherwise target resources to schools and students that need the greatest support. Parents and educators can use this important information to gain a deeper understanding of individual student strengths and needs.
Please see the VISD Assessment Calendars for specific testing dates.
