Important STAAR EOC retesting Information

In spring 2012, students enrolled in End-of-Course (EOC) subjects were assessed by the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) EOC tests. A retesting opportunity is being offered this summer for students who were eligible for the spring EOC administrations. According to state law, a student “may retake an end-of-course assessment instrument for any reason.” However, some students may be required to retake an EOC exam while others may elect to take it. (Students may verify their situation with their high school counselor.)

STAAR EOC retesting for district students will be available at all North East ISD high schools. NEISD students are expected to retest at their 2011-2012 high school campus. NEISD middle school students in 2011-2012 should retest at the high school based on their residence.

Retesting will be offered Monday, July 9, through Thursday, July 12, 2012. Students will have a choice of a morning or afternoon session as listed below for their high school campus.

Additionally, NEISD students may attend evening EOC testing sessions at MacArthur High School on Monday, July 9, through Thursday, July 12. Out-of-district students may retest only on Friday, July 13, as indicated below. A make-up session will also be offered for district students on July 13. Details about the evening and make-up sessions appear below.

All EOCs have a 4-hour time limit. To retest, students must bring a picture ID and two #2 pencils. Students should also consider bringing a snack/lunch since meals will not be provided, and students will not be allowed to leave campus until testing is completed. The school’s regular dress code applies and the Campus Cell Phone Policy will be followed during testing. Any questions about retesting can be directed to the high school or the district’s Testing Services department at 210-407-0178.
