New Performance Standards for STAAR Program - Phase-In Changes

The Texas Education Agency released information on changes in the performance standards phase-in for the STAAR program.  New standards will be put in place during the 2014-15 school year.  The new phase-in plan is as follows:

  • The current phase-in 1 performance standard will be maintained for the 2014-15 school year.
  • The new phase-in 2 performance standard will be implemented beginning in the 2015-16 school year.
  • The new phase-in 3 performance standards will be implemented beginning in the 2018-19 school year.
  • The final recommended performance standards will be implemented in the 2021-22 school year.
This is an adjustment from the previous 2 step phase-in to a three step process.  In addition, the number of years increases where the final recommended standard will be implemented in the 2021-2022 school year as opposed to the 2016-2017 school year.

At this time, no definitive standards have been set.  The text of the news release can be found here:  http://www.tea.state.tx.us/news_release.aspx?id=25769815651.
