Ennis ISD will join 1,119 other school districts across Texas in delaying the use of the the STAAR tests’ end of course exams in ninth-graders’ final grades.
A student’s performance on the end-of-course exams would normally count for 15 percent of their final grade. EISD Superintendent Barbara Qualls said most schools are opting out this year because there isn’t a uniform way to calculate the grade.
