All five STAAR EOC assessments REQUIRED for graduation—Algebra I, English I, English II,
Biology, and U.S. History—are administered at the end of the first semester (fall), at the end of the
second semester (spring), and in the summer, giving students three testing opportunities each
year. The number of testing opportunities students have prior to high school graduation is
dependent on when students take the corresponding course. For example, most students take
biology during their freshman year. That means students have ten testing opportunities before
they are scheduled to graduate. In contrast, most students take U.S. history during their junior
year, giving them four testing opportunities prior to high school graduation. Students who do not
pass one or more of the required assessments before their scheduled graduation may continue to
test during any administration.
If a student (remote or on campus) does not take a STAAR EOC test this school year, the student will be required to take the test during the next testing opportunity. Please realize if a student is enrolled in Algebra 1 but does not test this year, he/she will be required to test the next testing opportunity even though he/she is not enrolled in the course.

WINTER WEATHER PROTOCOL
If inclement winter weather, a severe storm or other weather-related emergency is forecast and
has hit the area, the Superintendent will determine if school will be open for the day or if classes
will be delayed by 6 a.m., at the latest, on the day of the event.
GISD’s existing communications method — an automated electronic notification system - will
broadcast a closing status message via text, automated phone call and email. All information will
also be posted on the Homepage of the GISD website at www.gladewaterisd.com and to GISD’s
social media pages.
GISD also will notify the television/radio stations. These stations will list or announce the closings
at their own discretion.
Employees will be notified whether or not they are to report for work.
