In 2011-12, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) replaced the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS), which had been the state assessment program in place since 2003.

STARR includes the 12 end-of-course (EOC) assessments mandated by SB 1031 in 2007 and the new grade 3-8 assessments mandated by HB 3 in 2009.

On March 8, 2012, Keller ISD's Board of Trustees passed a resolution deferring the implementation of the state-required end-of-course examination scores to count as 15% of the course grade for the 2011-12 school year. Click below to read the full resolution.
