Welcome CTCs!

2016 is here! The spring semester is always a flurry of activity. It's easy to lose track of time with all that is happening on your campus. Before you know it, TELPAS will be upon us, then Spring Break, and of course, STAAR! With all the changes at the state level (ETS, TOMS) and at the district level (Test Hound, Success Ed), it is going to be a challenge to keep up. The key is to conducting a successful test administration season is COMMUNICATION!
