    The first round of STAAR testing was conducted this past week in schools across Texas. And, that's left many parents full of questions since the new test brought numerous changes. So Thursday night, Wichita Falls ISD officials met with parents to help answer some of their questions. There's now greater emphasis on passing this state test, because it helps students not only graduate but advance to the next grade.
    Thursday night, Wichita Falls ISD officials said the test is new to them as well, and they want parents to be patient through the transition.
    "We realize the star is a new assessment there is many things that we do know about the STAAR but there are also many things that are yet to be determined about the STAAR," said WFISD Superintendent Dr. George Kazanas.
    If you weren't able to attend either meeting the district hosted, they created a short video which should answer your questions.
