Statewide Online STAAR Testing Suspended Today Featured Photo

Statewide Online STAAR Testing Suspended Today

Dear Parents of Students Taking Online STAAR Tests, The vendor for the online versions of the 4th, 7th, and English I EOC STAAR tests had technical difficulties today across the entire state. This interrupted testing for about 55 students in Rice CISD. Because of this, we have had to suspend the online testing for the day in Rice CISD. Students taking the tests on paper are still continuing with their exams. This is frustrating and disappointing for students and teachers who have been working hard and preparing for these exams. We hope to learn more from the Texas Education Agency later today or in the coming days on how school districts will proceed with rescheduling the tests. As soon as we know the next steps, we will communicate that to you, either from the district or through your campuses.
