Arlington ISD STAAR Central

Focused on Student Growth and Success




We know the path back from COVID-19 isn't an easy one, but we've seen tremendous growth from our students over the past year. Their hard work and that of Arlington ISD teachers, counselors and staff who focused on several key areas
have earned the district a rating of 85.

Classroom Instruction

  • Working with students in small groups in math and English classrooms
  • Priority on closing learning gaps with customized instruction to meet student needs

Summer School

  • More than 11,000 students attended summer school following 2020-21 year
  • More than 7,000 in summer school in 2022
  • STEM and enrichment opportunities such as music, art and dance being offered to elementary school students


  • Students who didn't pass STAAR received up to 30 hours of free tutoring
  • Each student received an IEP (Individualized Educational Plan) to help meet their needs
  • Tutoring offered before or after school or as part of curriculum

We are making gains to get students back where they expect to be.

FAQs STAAR 2021-22 School Year:

STAAR is the State’s testing program based on state curriculum standards in core subjects, including reading, mathematics, science and social studies.

STAAR tests measure what students in grades 3 – 8 have learned in each grade and whether or not they are ready for the next grade. STAAR End-of-Course (EOC) tests measure what students have learned in high school level courses such as Algebra I, English I, English II, Biology and U.S. history.

STAAR test results are one part of a three-part calculation used to determine the overall “accountability rating” for public school districts:

  • STAAR Test - 40%
  • College Career and Military Readiness (CCMR) - 40%
  • Graduation Rate - 20%

Arlington ISDs 2021 graduation rate is 87.7%.

The Arlington ISD is projected to receive a B rating with a numerical score of 85.

Each school receives a grade based on their school’s test results. These results are published on the TEA website. This year, schools with a score of 69 or below will receive a “Not Rated.” Scores will be available on the TEA website on August 15, 2022.
