Ninth grade students at John Tyler and Robert E. Lee high schools have access to a new online study resource called OnTRACK.
The web-based lessons are designed to prepare students for the STAAR End-of-Course (EOC) assessments.
“Tyler ISD constantly looks for ways to support our students’ learning,” Kim Tunnell, Tyler ISD executive director of curriculum and instruction, said. “This resource will reinforce what they’re learning in the classroom and help them be better prepared for STAAR.”
Freshmen students from John Tyler and Robert E. Lee high schools, who are enrolled in math and science classes, are encouraged to use OnTRACK to prepare for the STAAR EOC assessments. The online lessons supplement what students learn in algebra I and II, geometry and biology classes.
OnTRACK lessons make learning more engaging for students by using interactive simulation. Students can work through the lessons at their own pace and complete them in any order. The lessons are not graded or subjected to any in-class assessment connected to grading.
The OnTRACK learning project is a free resource provided by the Texas Education Agency. Tyler ISD hopes parents will encourage their students to use this learning resource.
