Region 13’s ESC Testing Coordinator received this message today. Please share this news from TEA with all associated with the STAAR Alternate 2 administration.
To the District and ESC Testing Coordinator Addressed:
This communication is to inform you of the following update for the 2019 State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR®) Alternate 2 administration.
Due to the concerns some districts have expressed about the new STAAR Alternate 2 registration and ordering process, the Texas Education Agency (TEA) is extending the testing window to Friday, April 26, 2019. This extension should allow districts that received its materials orders late in the testing window to complete the STAAR Alternate 2 administration for all eligible students.
Districts that plan to use the testing window extension do not need to contact TEA or Pearson. If you have questions about this extension or STAAR Alternate 2, please call the Student Assessment Division at 512-463-9536. Thank you.
