|UPDATE: Due to heavy lightning in the area, students at Intermediate and Junior highs (as well as early release high school students) are being kept inside unless a parent comes in to get them. As soon as the lightning subsides we will allow students to board buses or walk home. Expect some bus delays as we work to keep everyone safe.
Wylie ISD, along with emergency management officials, are monitoring the weather. We understand that parents are anxious. Often weather events happen fast and situations can vary from campus to campus. We will do our best to keep you informed in a timely manner, especially as it pertains changes in dismissal times, transportation issues, afterschool events and any other changes to your child’s instructional day.

Information about STAAR
The 2011-2012 school years marks the end of the TAKS test and the beginning of the State’s new assessment test: STAAR (The State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness.) In grades 3–8, STARR will assess the same grades and subjects as were assessed on TAKS. For high school students, general subject-area TAKS tests will be replaced with twelve STAAR end-of-course (EOC) assessments.
Several aspects of the new test are still being determined. The Texas Education Agency has created a website with more information on the STAAR. The STAAR Q&As is available on the Student Assessment website. Questions and answers will be added as additional decisions are finalized.
