STAAR 3-8 & EOC results will no longer be mailed home during the summer. Please access your child's scores through the Texas Assessment family portal. You can access STAAR scores utilizing the student's TSDS ID (posted on Skyward) and DOB, and we encourage you to take advantage of the details offered in the score reports, which can help prepare for future exams.
Spring 2023 scores will be available on the following dates on the family portal (dates subject to change):
EOC: August 11, 2023
Grades 3 - 8: August 16, 2023
It is also important to know that the state has transitioned to online STAAR testing.
