TESTING SEASON

Just a friendly reminder about required testing online trainings that should all be completed by this Friday. Please take the time to complete these ASAP. I know they aren't "fun", but they are required for all staff. Please see below for the email that was sent last week.


Testing season is upon us which means so is training season. (Try to contain your excitement! J)

In an effort to minimize the number of face to face meetings and maximize everyone’s time, there are several e-courses that must be completed by the dates listed below. All staff members are required to complete ALL of these required trainings. No exceptions…it is all hands on deck for testing. J


Kendrick Middle School Test Security and Confidentiality Training. A “quiz” is required at the completion of this training prior to requesting credit.
