STAAR Released Tests Item Bank

With the help of our partner Region 10 ESC, the STAAR Released Tests Bank is available to all Aware districts.

Here are a few details to keep in mind:
- All STAAR released items are in this bank. They have been separated and moved over from TEKSBank.
- Districts can search for and add individual items to tests by selecting and filtering the bank STAAR Released Tests Item Bank.
