Carroll ISD To Host STAAR, EOC Meetings

Parents of current freshmen students enrolled at Carroll High School are invited to attend one of four public meetings designed to help parents learn more about the state end of course tests and how these tests will impact their children.

The meetings are scheduled for 6 p.m. September 28 in the CHS cafeteria; 6 p.m. October 3 in the CHS cafeteria; noon on October 5th in the CHS library; and 6 p.m. on October 12 in the CHS cafeteria.

Members of the district’s Teaching & Learning Services Department have prepared informational presentations on the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness or STAAR. Local officials say they are still waiting on some answers from the state about how the STAAR and EOC exams will be implemented, but parents need to be informed about how the new testing systems will affect their child now through graduation.

Parents are encouraged to attend just one of the four, repeat presentations. Information will be sent via letter and posted to the CISD website afterward for those parents unable to attend.
