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.
