STAAR Testing On The Horizon

The State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) test will be administered to students this year and will take place in-person.

Because of this and the global pandemic happening, school districts will have an extended period of time to get students to complete the test.

Both Borger and River Road have plans in place to accommodate students who will be taking the tests.

The first week of testing, tests will be given on paper.

The following four weeks, tests will be given online but still in-person.

The Texas Education Agency says school districts can also utilize performing arts centers, hotels and recreation centers outside of the school if more space is needed to take the test.

Both Borger ISD and River Road ISD say they do not believe outside facilities will need to be used.
