Telpas and Staar

To open Telpas website link from District.

We are held accountable to teach the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) by the State of Texas. TEA is the governing body that sets forth the guidance and curriculum that we must follow to ensure that each child is learning the TEKS. These skills and aptitudes are measured in different sets of battery tests. Telpas measures the acquisition of language by the students in areas of Listening, Speaking and Reading. It also is counted in the overall report card for the campus at the end of the year together with the students scores in Staar, the State mandated test that measures Reading, Writing and Mathematical aptitudes of the students. The tests are based on the TEKS standards.
In addition, our teachers are certified by a rigorous set of tests that measure their abilities to teach and their knowledge of mathematics, literature, and language acquisition skills.
