As part of HB4545, effective as of June 16, 2021, any student who did not pass STAAR grades 3-8 or EOC assessments, must receive accelerated instruction in the 2021-2022 school year (starting in fall 2021) or subsequent summer of 2022. Accelerated instruction entails either 1) assigning a classroom teacher who is a certified master, exemplary, or recognized teacher, or 2) delivering supplemental instruction (e.g., tutoring) before or after school, or embedded in the school day and meeting HB 4545 requirements.
ESC Region 12 is offering a number of services to support schools and districts as they develop tutoring programs in accordance with the legislation.
