A HUGE THANK you goes out to all the staff members who were present and at work for the entire month of January. If you feel you were left out, please let Gigi know! Each of you have received a "Jeans Pass"
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.
Due Date: Monday, February 8th
TEA Online Training Modules.
ALL staff members (regardless of if you have completed these prior) are REQUIRED to complete the 3 modules listed below. Certificates MUST be PRINTED and turned into Lockey for documentation.
**This will be the only year you will have to complete these for Kendrick MS.
**A refresher on testing is never a bad thing! J
Module 1 - Active Monitoring
