Please click here for information about the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) testing program provided by the Texas Education Agency.
The Texas Education Code 39.023(a) requires all students to be assessed with the appropriate tests, including all STAAR assessments, high school end-of-course exams and other tests.
Denton ISD campuses must follow Texas Education Code, which clearly states that there is no parental right to remove a student from a test. Specifically, the law states that a parent or guardian “is not entitled to remove a child from a class or other school activity to avoid a test.” The district must administer the state test; there is no option to “opt out.”
It's the goal of Denton ISD to maintain a calm and secure environment so students are in the best possible position to succeed during test days. We thank you for your cooperation during this testing season.
Please call or refer to your campus website for detailed information on upcoming testing opportunities.
