High School Summer Office Hours

Monday – Thursday 

8:00 AM – 3:00 PM

Summer School

June 3 – June 27

Monday – Thursday

8:00 AM – 12 Noon

EOC and STAAR testing

Week of June 24 – 27

All tests start at 8:15 AM

On June 12th, parents can access their child’s STAAR results and a suite of other resources to support summer learning at home by visiting TexasAssessment.gov. Your district will also receive paper copies of the STAAR Report Card (SRC) to distribute to parents over the summer. For information on how teachers can access these results, check out our website to learn more about the STAAR educator portal

We’re asking each school district to take the following three steps to help parents access these resources:

  • Distribute the "Log In & Learn More" flyer to parents in your district. Please use the method your district typically uses to share information with parents (direct mail, email, send home with students, etc.). The flyer explains the steps parents must take to access their child’s STAAR results at TexasAssessment.gov. We’d like your district to share the flyer as soon as possible but no later than June 12th.
  • Securely distribute Unique Access Codes to parents. Parents need a Unique Access Code to log in to TexasAssessment.govThese are unique IDs and should not be sent home in backpacks. Please use a secure method for distributing them. We’d like your district to share the Unique Access Codes with parents as soon as possible but no later than June 12th.
  • Distribute the STAAR Report Card. When your district receives the paper copies of the STAAR Report Card in June, quickly distribute them to parents. You may distribute the reports via mail, parent email, portal, or any method you typically use to communicate with parents over the summer.

To assist your school in this effort, we’ve attached an FAQ document providing additional context about this effort.

Your partnership in this work is critical to our goal of strengthening parent engagement and parent-teacher partnerships. In addition to performance and growth results, TexasAssessment.gov provides a collection of resources for parents, including the actual questions from the test, more information about the STAAR, a Find a Book Tool to help students build a summer reading list, and additional math and reading tips.

We believe all parents should take advantage of these resources, and we appreciate your help in providing them with the information to do so. Thank you for your continued support of Texas parents and students.


Sincerely,
Commissioner Mike Morath

Aiding Students Who Have Learning Difficulties or Who Need Special Education or Section 504 Services

For those students who are having difficulty in the regular classroom, all school districts and open enrollment charter schools must consider tutorial, compensatory, and other academic or behavior support services that are available to all students, including a process based on Response to Intervention (RtI). The implementation of RtI has the potential to have a positive impact on the ability of districts and charter schools to meet the needs of all struggling students.

If a student is experiencing learning difficulties, his or her parent may contact the individual(s) listed below to learn about the school’s overall general education referral or screening system for support services. This system links students to a variety of support options, including making a referral for a special education evaluation or for a Section 504 evaluation to determine if the student needs specific aids, accommodations, or services.  A parent may request an evaluation for special education or Section 504 services at any time.

Special Education Referrals:

If a parent makes a written request for an initial evaluation for special education services to the director of special education services or an administrative employee of the school district or open enrollment charter school, the district or charter school must respond no later than 15 school days after receiving the request. At that time, the district or charter school must give the parent a prior written notice of whether it agrees to or refuses to evaluate the student, along with a copy of the Notice of Procedural Safeguards.  If the school district or charter school agrees to evaluate the student, it must also give the parent the opportunity to give written consent for the evaluation.

 

If the district or charter school decides to evaluate the student, it must complete the student’s initial evaluation and evaluation report no later than 45 school days from the day it receives a parent’s written consent to evaluate the student.  However, if the student is absent from school during the evaluation period for three or more school days, the evaluation period will be extended by the number of school days equal to the number of school days that the student is absent.

 

There is an exception to the 45-school-day timeline.  If a district or charter school receives a parent’s consent for the initial evaluation at least 35 but less than 45 school days before the last instructional day of the school year, it must complete the written report and provide a copy of the report to the parent by June 30 of that year. However, if the student is absent from school for three or more days during the evaluation period, the June 30th due date no longer applies. Instead, the general timeline of 45 school days plus extensions for absences of three or more days will apply.

 

Upon completing the evaluation, the district or charter school must give the parent a copy of the evaluation report at no cost.

Additional information regarding special education is available from the district or charter school in a companion document titled Parent’s Guide to the Admission, Review, and Dismissal Process

Section 504 Referrals:

Each school district or charter school must have standards and procedures in place for the evaluation and placement of students in the district’s or charter school’s Section 504 program. Districts and charter schools must also implement a system of procedural safeguards that includes notice, an opportunity for a parent or guardian to examine relevant records, an impartial hearing with an opportunity for participation by the parent or guardian and representation by counsel, and a review procedure.
