State Seeks Input On Assessment Programs
The Texas Commission on Next Generation Assessments and Accountability recently agreed to recommend that the Legislature explore alternatives to the STAAR test.

The survey is open online to all Texans through June 30 and is available in English and Spanish. NISD encourages parents, staff, and community members to participate in the survey, and let your voice be heard. Click here for the survey.
