It’s no secret that much of a child’s success depends on parental involvement. In that vein, DISD is hosting informational meetings for the new state standardized test, STAAR.
The test won’t take full effect until Spring 2012, but there’s no time like to present to prepare for STAAR’s increased academic rigor. To learn more about the test, including how your tech-savvy student can use a Wii, iPhone, or computer to prep for it, stop by any of the district’s nine parent workshops Dec. 5 through 9 . All workshops are from 5 to 7:30 p.m. For the full listing, go to the jump.
