TEA wants every district on year round school because of STAAR. It has nothing to do with Covid-19. They just want you to think it does. This was planned as part of HB3 way before Covid-19. If you look at the testing calendar this is so they get 3 full testing dates and they donít have to worry about kids not being in school for the 3rd date. This is what summer school is used for now. This date is used if students fail the 1st and 2nd assessments. The majority of districts going year round have high % rates of failed STAAR tests.
