Media Advisory: News Media Access to Schools Limited During STAAR Examination Period June 24-25

Austin, Texas—Next week, Austin ISD students are scheduled to take the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness in math and reading for fifth and eighth grade.

To reduce distractions and help students focus on their tests, the news media’s access to AISD campuses will be limited June 24 and 25.

As has been the practice on test days in the past, the district will continue to limit visitors’ access to schools during student assessment periods. As always, AISD appreciates the news media’s cooperation.
