Tips to help your STAAR test-taker shine


The STAAR test is next week, so here are few things parents can do to best set their students up for success.

  • Download a copy of the District testing Schedule found at to know when your children will be taking their STAAR tests.
  • Ensure that your children have their uniforms or clothing and their school bags ready the night before to avoid being late to class.
  • Encourage your children by telling them they will do well on the exam.
  • Practice reading at home—at least 15 minutes every night.
  • Children who are well-rested and have had a nutritious breakfast will be able to concentrate better, which will improve their self-confidence and allow them to complete the STAAR successfully.
