RHS to offer TAKS exit exam for non-students in October

Rockdale High School will offer the TAKS Exit Level exams in October for out-of-school examinees, according to Cathy Ormsby, RISD testing coordinator. Tests dates are Oct. 20 (ELA), Oct. 21 (mathematics), Oct. 22 (science) and Oct. 23 (social studies).

Individuals who are no longer enrolled in school and who have not previously met minimum expectations on all sections of the TAKS test, but who have met all other graduation requirements, may register to retake the necessary sections(s), Ormsby said.

All out-of-school TAKS examinees must complete a registration form. Out-of-school examinees may register online at www.TexasAssessment. com or by contacting Ormsby at 512-430-6144 for a registration packet.
