October Operations Newsletter

Vol. 4, Iss. 2



I hope everyone had a great September and here’s to an even better October! I just wanted to let you that there is a new testing folder in SharePoint. You will find the folder under documents > State Testing Resources Library.

I will be posting handy information there regularly about testing. Recently, I added some items that may be of interest to you and your families in the sub-folder titled TNReady State Resources. This sub-folder contains testing time charts, calculator policy, and math reference sheets from the state. Please reach out to me with some feedback if there are other items you would like to see added there.

Best Regards,
