SWISD Notices

April 6, 2021

Dear Southwest ISD Families,


Due to statewide technical issues, the Texas Education Agency has postponed online STAAR testing today, Tuesday, April 6, 2021, for students in 4th-grade, 7th-grade, and English I. This morning, thousands of remote test-takers across the state were unable to take their STAAR exams, as TEA informed districts of the technical issues that would prevent online students from testing. Students were then dismissed from the testing rooms and online instruction resumed.


We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause to our families. As of now, 4th and 7th grade writing and English I will be rescheduled for Tuesday, April 13, 2021 and English II will be rescheduled for April 15, 2021. Here is the official statement from the TEA.


We will continue to keep our families updated as we receive information. Thank you for your patience and understanding.


Sincerely,


Dr. Verstuyft

Dr. Lloyd Verstuyft

Superintendent of Schools
