Welcome to my web site. My name is Patrick Tempelmeyer, and I am the Campus Testing Coordinator for Rider High School.
STAAR Test requirements for graduation have changed because of HB 5 passed by the Texas State Legislature in late May, 2013. Students who entered 9th grade in the fall of 2011 or after are now required to pass five STAAR EOC Tests. These STAAR EOC Tests are English I, English II, Algebra I, Biology, and U.S. History. TEA has set the time limit for the English Tests at 5 hours each, the Algebra I, Biology, and U.S. History are set at 4 hours each. TAKS Tests are still available for any student who entered 9th grade prior to 2011 and who has not met their graduation requirements. This test is only given online. Students still needing to take a TAKS tests need to contact the Rider High School Guidance Office.
The Testing Office is located in the back of the Rider Library. The office is open from 7:15 until 3:45 daily unless there is a meeting or testing. Please call ahead if you need an appointment.
