This week and next we are administering a Beginning-of-Year STAAR test to students who did not take the STAAR this year. We also will be providing additional instruction during the school day to students who did not pass (did not score Approaches, Meets, or Masters) their STAAR or STAAR EOC test last year (and this is why we are administering the BOY STAAR test to those who did not test last year--to see if they qualify for additional instruction).
The Texas Education Agency recently announced a program to address the educational needs of those students who are home due to a test positive case for COVID-19 or are quarantining due to close contact.
Beginning Monday, August 23, Meridian School will require that masks be worn indoors on campus. This is based on several factors that we have studied with careful consideration over the past two weeks.
