This week and next week LISD students, as well as students from around the South Plains, will be taking part in the STAAR test.

The STAAR test or State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness is a mandatory, standardized test that will assist in determining if a student should advance to the next grade or graduate from high school.

High school students will take the test starting today through May 5th and Elementary students will take the test starting next Monday, May 8th.

So be sure to get the kids plenty of rest, some good meals, and some study time. These tests can determine their future in school!
