Chart your course to STAAR success!

As you know the Commissioner of Education for the State of Texas has announced that Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) will be replaced by the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR). This new system will require substantial instructional leadership from campus administrators and other district leaders. Because the design of STAAR is grounded in what is known about how students learn, campus administrators and district leaders need to lead in a way that ensures that teachers have the tools, resources, and strategies to ensure that all students have access to the standards assessed on STAAR.
