STAAR Interim Testing (Grades 3-6) – February 27 – 29

A Message From Mrs. Baker

CCE Families,

I can’t believe that it is almost March! We are full steam ahead here at CCE. Please be mindful of our STAAR Interim Assessment dates (for grades 3-6) outlined at the bottom of this newsletter. Your child’s attendance is important everyday, but please be especially mindful to not schedule doctor’s appointments on test days if at all possible. This year, students took a Fall Interim Assessment that we will be able to use for a growth comparison after receiving spring scores. In turn, as a staff we will have very specific data related to the standards that your child is mastering, and those that they still need support on.

Our 3rd-6th grade teachers are already working with students on the Cambium platform during the instructional day, and during tutoring. During open house, you will be able to view the platform and ask any questions regarding the STAAR test. Please be looking for information from your child’s classroom teacher on how to access the testing platform at home. We want to encourage you to explore the platform and test questions at home with your child. We want all students to feel adequately prepared and exposed to this platform prior to testing.

Please reach out via e-mail ( or by phone (469-593-6502) if you have any questions or would like to talk through this information further.
