Representative Harris is calling for the suspension of the STAAR test and adjustment to the requirements for Waivers and Funding.
I have been visiting with Representative Harris as we've been on this most recent journey. He is very aware and sympathetic to our situation and is actively serving as our advocate.
I would encourage you to contact Governor Abbott and Commissioner Morath to voice your concerns related to the pressure of testing especially during this challenging time.
This situation is rapidly changing and I'm constantly gaining new information. I will be attempting to send a daily email to update you and share as much information as I feel appropriate. Some of the most valuable information will come from Commissioner Morath as he visits with superintendents in a daily phone call.
I pray that each of you is able to step away from this and spend time relaxing and recharging. I hope you have a great Spring Break!!
