STAAR Testing Runs April 9-25

Sherman ISD schools will administer the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness, or STAAR tests, during the month of April. Dates vary by subject and grade level. 

STAAR is the state's testing program and is based on state curriculum standards in core subjects including Reading Language Arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. The tests help inform teachers and families about student proficiency and progress on grade-level knowledge and skills. 

SISD campuses will be closed to visitors on STAAR testing days. Please refer to the full schedule below. 

Children should be at school on testing days and be encouraged to do their best. STAAR tests will be administered on make-up days to any students absent on the scheduled testing days.
