House Bill 4545 Requirements

The 87th legislative session eliminated the Student Success Initiative (SSI) for students in 5th and 8th grade; however, the SSI was replaced with requirements enacted with HB 4545 as shared below:

  • Students who do not meet the passing standard on a STAAR assessment, or students who do not take an applicable STAAR assessment, are subject to accelerated instruction requirements as outlined in HB 4545. This includes grades 3–8 and STAAR End of Course assessments. Students will only take the STAAR assessment one time within the designated testing window.
  • Per legislation, 30 hours of accelerated instruction must be provided for each STAAR assessment not passed or not taken. This may be completed during the school day or before/after school, depending on the campus schedule.
