As we prepare to close out the 2020-2021 school year, we are writing to share information about the return process of the technology devices assigned to your students.
In order to identify academic areas that have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Texas Education Agency (TEA) is requiring all districts to administer the STAAR test. PAISD has made the decision to proceed with all online testing for the 2020-21 STAAR Administration.
On October 21, 2020, Governor Abbott and TEA announced that they had established the Supplementary Special Education Services program designed to connect eligible students with severe cognitive disabilities to additional supports for the critical services they may require. The program helps connect these families to personalized services through a funded allocation, helping to offset learning disruptions due to COVID-19.
