    Student Success Initiative (SSI)

    During the 2020-2021 school year, the Student Success Initiative has been waived by the Texas Education Agency. Students in grades 5 and 8 will not be subjected to retest requirements or retention, based on their performance on the STAAR Reading and Math assessments. 

     

    In typical years, the State of Texas mandates that students in grades 5 and 8 pass both the reading and math STAAR tests to be promoted to the next grade level.

     

    Students have up to three opportunities to attain a passing score (April, May, and June) on these assessments. An accelerated instruction plan is created at the campus level for students who have been unsuccessful. This plan is designed (based on the individual needs of the students) to help students acquire grade level skills.

     

    Below you will find a link to the TEA brochure that provides additional information on the SSI process and procedures.
