  • 5th & 8th Graders Surpass STAAR Expectations

    Hays CISD received the results of the first round of STAAR tests for district 5th and 8th graders this week and students have exceeded all of the improvement and performance goals set by the Board of Trustees. Passing STAAR test results are reported by groups of students who approach, meet, and master grade level material. The district’s largest single gain from the 2017 -2018 school year was in the 5th grade math “masters” category, where students demonstrated a 14% increase this school year compared to last. Other double digit percentage gains occurred in the 8th grade math and 8th grade reading categories.
