  • STAAR EOC SUMMER RETEST INFORMATION

    As KHS is the Summer School site this year, all KHS Summer EOC testing will take place at Clements HS (4200 Elkins Rd. Sugar Land, TX 77479) this year. 

    The STAAR EOC retest schedule is as follows:

     

    Tuesday, June 22-English I

    Wednesday, June 23-Algebra I

    Thursday, June 24-English II

    Friday, June 25-Biology and U.S. History

     

    Students driving themselves need to park in the student parking lot (lot closest to Sweetwater Blvd.) and enter the school through the bus ramp entrance. Students being dropped off need to also be dropped off at the bus ramp entrance. It is important that students enter through the bus ramp entrance, as the testing rooms are right as one enters through these doors.

     

    Bus transportation will be provided to and from KHS each day if needed. Students will be picked up at the northern-most end of the bus ramp (across from the T-shacks) at KHS at 7:15am each morning to transport to CHS. On Tuesday and Thursday, students will return to KHS at 1:30pm. On Wednesday and Friday, students will return to KHS at 12:30pm. If your student is riding the bus from KHS to CHS, please make sure they are at the KHS bus ramp before 7:15 to catch the bus. The bus will leave KHS at 7:15. You may drop them off at the front circle drive or in the student parking lot. 

     

    Students will need to arrive at CHS and be in their testing room no later than 7:30am on their test day and are required to know their ID number in order to enter the testing room. Make sure you know your ID number. Late students will not be allowed to test. Room rosters will be posted at the bus ramp entrance. We will provide all supplies needed to take the exam. Remember, electronic devices of any kind are not allowed during testing. Students may bring bottled water and a snack if they would like. PLEASE NO CHEESY OR STICKY SNACKS. A light jacket is also recommended.

     

    Students who drive or are being picked up will be dismissed from their testing room upon completion of their test and must immediately exit the building from where they entered.

     

    Students who are riding the bus back to KHS will be dismissed to the commons to wait for all testing to conclude and the return bus to arrive. Lunch will not be provided, although one can be brought. It is highly recommended that students have a ride home available once testing is complete so they do not possibly have to wait for an extended amount of time to take the bus back.

     

    Students who are attending Summer School will receive an excused absence from Summer School to attend STAAR EOC Testing. If not able to attend Summer Testing in June (i.e. out of town, on vacation, working), then the next opportunity to retest will be in December.

     

    Summer STAAR EOC results will be posted to the Student Portal at www.texasassessment.com on Thursday, July 29. Please check the results if testing this summer.

     

    I will be out of the office from June 11 until testing begins on Tuesday, June 22.
