Trimble Tech has announced plans for students taking this year’s end of course exams. Each year, the Texas Education Agency requires high school students to take and pass five (5) STAAR exams to be eligible to graduate. The annual STAAR exams are English I, English II, Algebra I, Biology and U.S. History.
In 2020, the TEA waived the STAAR test. This year, they will not be granting waivers for students who do not test. All students enrolled in the tested courses must come to campus to take the exam, this includes students who have not passed the EOC test and are considered re-testers.
To minimize the number of students on campus, only students who are testing and in-person seniors will be at the school. On testing days, all classes will be asynchronous for students who are not testing.
The following dates are set for 2021 STAAR/ EOC Exams:
English I tests on Tuesday, April 6
English II tests on Thursday, April 8
Algebra I tests on Tuesday, May 4
Biology tests on Wednesday, May 5
U.S. History tests on Thursday, May 6
Principal Ramos has provided a video message that details the STAAR requirements. Please watch the video for more information.
