If your Melissa ISD student participated in the spring STAAR EOC or 8th/5th Grade Math/Reading assessments, their primary guardian will be receiving an email with their passing status. If the student has a “1” in the Approaches, Meets, and/or Masters column, they met that performance level. If they have a “0”, they did not meet that performance level. Detailed results will be available online in June - learn more at www.melissaisd.org/staar. For high school students who didn’t earn Approaches, or declined testing, the next testing opportunity is June 22-24; details will be emailed next week.
