Material for Districts to Train Teachers

STAAR redesign training materials for districts

Earlier this year, districts received professional development materials to assist them in training teachers to better understand how STAAR aligns with high-quality classroom instruction. Districts are encouraged to continue their efforts to build educator understanding about the redesigned STAAR test.
