The Venus ISD Board of Trustees targeted its goals on Third Grade and Graduating Seniors because research has shown that performance at those grade levels is indicative of future achievement in subsequent grade levels and beyond. Third Grade assessments are the culmination of the efforts made by teachers in grades PK-3, and College, Career, and Military Readiness is a key measure of the readiness of our graduates to be successful in a variety of paths in their lives after public education.
