The most recent round of preliminary STAAR testing results show gains in several areas for Farmersville ISD.
STAAR is the acronym for State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness. Students must pass end of course tests in Algebra 1, Biology, U.S. History, English 1 and English 2 to earn a high school diploma. A passing grade is designated as “approaches grade level.” STAAR testing occurs in math and reading for third through eighth grade, writing for grades 4 and 7, science at grades 5 and 8 and social studies at grade 8.
The final scores will be available in August.
“Farmersville ISD continues to work at staying above state averages. Our teachers and administrators work very hard to help all students be successful,” Assistant Superintendent Garry Jameson said.
