Parents & Students,

STAAR: State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness
The 2012-2013 academic year continues the latest standards for state assessments of student academic readiness. The State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness, STAAR, raises the bar for academic rigor in classrooms across the state.
We welcome this change! Our campus is in its fourth year using CScope curriculum. CScope is a comprehensive, aligned, systemic model of curriculum in the four content areas, designed using the state standards for academic readiness. I've included a link for the CScope web site at the bottom of this letter, for your convenience.
Technology and lab experiences are excellent learning tools used daily to motivate, stimulate, and inspire higher order thinking skills necessary for developing creative and divergent problem solvers of the future.
I am excited and ready for a successful year of discovery and learning and together. Please feel free to contact me if you have questions or concerns throughout the year.
Go Spurs Go!!!
