As a result of COVID 19, Governor Abbott waived the State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness (STAAR) testing requirements for the 2019-2020 school year. TEA has submitted a letter to the U.S. Department of Education (USDE) to waive the assessment and accountability requirements for the 2019-2020 school year.
Student Success Initiative (SSI) promotion/retention requirements for Grade 5 and 8 have also been waived for 2019-2020 and districts have local discretion for Grade 5 and 8 advancement similarly to other grades.
TEA has waived the 2019-2020 End of Course (EOC) performance requirements for 2019-2020 seniors who have not yet completed all their STAAR EOC requirements. Those current seniors may graduate through the Individual Graduation Committee (IGC) process in lieu of passing EOCs, regardless of the number of EOCs still needed. If a senior was scheduled to take a required EOC for the first time in Spring 2020, that senior will not be required to pass that EOC and an IGC is not required if the senior receives course credit in the 2019-2020 school year.
For students other than seniors who complete full course credit for any EOC course in Spring 2020, the EOC passing requirement for graduation is waived. However, if the student does not complete full course credit by Summer 2020 and has to re-take one or both semesters in the 2020-2021 school year, the student will be required to pass the corresponding EOC for graduation purposes.
Students that received full course credit prior to Spring 2020 but failed to pass the corresponding EOC (re-testers) are still required to pass their EOCs for graduation purposes.
High school students should email their campus Assistant Principal for Assessment & Accountability if they have any questions.
