STAAR Information

Dear Bailey families,

 One of the many ways we support students in their academic growth is through standardized testing, and this year is no different. We are encouraging our families to send their students to Bailey to participate in STAAR testing. Participation will provide important baseline data regarding your student’s performance this year, and assist our teachers in instructional planning for the upcoming school year. Below we have included some general information about STAAR testing this Spring at Bailey.

  • All current AISD health and safety protocols will be followed throughout the testing process.
  • This year all STAAR tests will be administered on campus in an online format.
  • Per TEA, STAAR tests cannot be administered remotely.
  • Students who are remote learners are encouraged to come to campus, take their test and return home to continue remote learning.
  • Testing will be set up in large spaces to maximize social distance.
  • All students and staff will wear masks at all times.
  • Students will need to test on an AISD device. Personal devices cannot be used.
