The Algebra/Biology/US History STAAR EOC exams have a time limit of 4 hours. Because of this, students will take a break for lunch during the test and eat in the test centers. All students taking a test will need to bring a sack lunch to school, as well as #2 pencils. Students will be able to purchase a sack lunch from the cafeteria. No outside deliveries will be accepted.
As always, students who are testing should be well rested, arrive on time, and be mentally prepared for testing. Testing room assignments will be posted at the North and South ends of our campus, as well as a QR code for students to scan and view their room assignment electronically. We will also have adults readily available on the morning of the test to assist students in finding their testing center.
Locations for all three tests (Algebra I, Biology and US History) are contained inside the following document. The document is ordered by last name, first name and grade level. Students can use CTRL+F on desktop or other search functions to find their name more easily.
Lunches for Students
All testing students are to bring their own lunch. Sack lunches will be available for purchase for any student that is unable to bring their own lunch from home.
