During STAAR testing this morning, a statewide outage of the state’s online testing platform (ETS) disrupted online STAAR testing for LISD’s fourth- and seventh-grade students. Those taking the test on paper were able to continue testing. This outage is affecting our students’ ability to complete the internet-based STAAR test at this time however, some students were able to continue and/or resume online testing within the allotted time.

TEA is aware of the issue and will be providing guidance as to how students can proceed who have already begun testing as well as what actions should be taken by students who have not yet begun the test. 

Affected schools include:

  • Akin ES
  • Block House Creek ES
  • Laura W. Bush ES
  • Cox ES
  • Cypress ES
  • Deer Creek ES
  • Faubion ES
  • Four Points MS
  • Grandview Hills ES
  • Knowles ES
  • Naumann ES
  • Reed ES
  • River Place ES
  • Stiles MS
  • Westside ES
  • Winkley ES

Thank you for your patience as we work through the situation and minimize the disruption to the school day.
