TEA announced Dec. 9, 2014, that the spring 2015 testing date for the grades 5 and 8 math STAAR will move from March 30 to April 20.

The postponement is thanks to a request by superintendents, math educators and State Board of Education members to delay the tests because of ongoing transition to revised math curriculum standards this school year. The math TEKS recently underwent significant revision, including the movement of critical content to lower grade levels.

Other STAAR testing dates will remain unchanged for 2014-15.
