DALLAS - A power outage at the Dallas Independent School District headquarters shortly shut down Internet connections at 38 schools within the district during STAAR testing.

The power was restored at 10:07 a.m. and Oncor is looking into the problem.

While it was earlier reported that the outage affected a part of STAAR testing taken online, Jon Dahlander, a spokesman for DISD, later sent a statement that said the Internet outage did not impact the testing.
