Parents Get a Taste of TAKS

Some parents in Amarillo now have a taste for the TAKS test. Moms and dads of sophomores and juniors came out to Palo Duro High School tonight to take a stab at the writing portion of the test.

Teachers are hosting the pilot program to help parents understand just how tough the test can be.

AISD's Kelly Bonjour explains why the district thought parents would benifit from the program.

"We' re hoping to accomplish getting the community involved in the school and show them how hard the test is it s not easy to just sit down and take.

Bonjour says the district hopes to host another taks night for parents in mid-February just before kids have to take the test themselves.
