The 2016 District and Campus Coordinator Manual is Posted!
The 2016 DCCM is now posted on the TEA website (access by clicking here). NOTE: Language in the 2016 District and Campus Coordinator Manual stating that students are required to leave the testing room when they have completed their tests should instead read, "After students submit their tests online, or after their paper tests are collected, students may be allowed to quietly read books or leave the testing room." Replacement pages for the 2016 District and Campus Coordinator Manual will be made available online only and will be posted to the TEA website in January 2016.
