Yoakum Independent School District

The new state assessment STAAR was given for the first time during the 2011-2012 school  year.  Our teachers and students worked extremely hard to prepare for the rigors of the new test.  Yoakum ISD feels that it is important for parents and students to be informed about the testing and dates. These dates are subject to change by the state.
