MAP Testing Information

Dear Parents,

Please help us support your student's achievement on the upcoming MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) test, to be given between September 11 and September 19 for 5th graders. Not only will this test act as an effective tool to measure your student's 10th growth, but it may also predict success on the STAAR exam. In addition, MAP scores are used to help determine gifted and talented program eligibility (when accompanied by the appropriate nomination materials and additional test results).

Ensure that students have a good night's rest, a healthy breakfast, and come to school ready to focus. Let's work together to help create a road MAP to your student's success!

Thank you!

This is a report required by the Texas Legislature and prepared by the Texas Education Agency. It is to be sent to the parent or guardian of every child enrolled in a Texas public school. The report provides information concerning student performance on the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR), as well as information on student enrollment, class size averages, and financial expenditures.

The information contained in the School Report Card is required by state law and is briefly described in the enclosed “2013 and 2014 School Report Card Definitions.” The report for our school may or may not have all the information described, because the information presented depends on whether the school is an elementary, middle, or high school.

State law requires that the school report card display information about for the state, the district, and the school. Where possible, the information must be reported by race/ethnicity and socio-economic status of the students and must include at least two years of results.
