Testing & Accountability Message:
Test data for each assessment is certified every semester based on an analysis of test data and all of the test forms administered during that semester. The certification process requires the completion of several quality control steps to ensure each operational item and all forms of the assessment performed as expected. The test data generated are certified as accurate provided that all NCDPI-directed test administration guidelines, rules, procedures, and policies have been followed at the district and school levels in conducting proper test administrations and in the generation of the data.
New forms and formats were introduced this spring for some subjects. These assessments will endure additional scrutiny and as a result may be some of the last subjects certified this spring.
Thank you for your patience as we work to complete the necessary quality control checks. The NCDPI suggests individual student reporting be delayed until the test data is certified.
Calling All Mentors
Next Tuesday, June 2 and next Wednesday, June 3 Laura Clark will be at the Rader Center in the Computer Lab to get teachers started on the Online Mentor Training Modules which can be completed at their own pace over the summer.

End Of Year
- EOY is a busy time, but don't forget your purpose. We are here for the children and what we can do to make them better as they become self-sufficient adults.
- Please encourage good behavior and model good behavior. Side-walk chatter or the hallway buzz can sometime catch us off guard and we just let it all out --right then, --right there, --boy does it feel good to get it all out!!! Remember we are role models for our students and we need to be professionals at all times. Sometimes we MUST hold back and wait until our students are gone before we release.
- JEANS - We have used the honor code for jeans passed the past two years, after two years of turning them in to me in exchange for wearing jeans. Please, if you wear jeans display your sticker on your garments. If you do not have a jeans pass sticker visible I will be under the assumption that you do not have a pass and will place a notice in your box. I hate to seem petty, but this practice is a privilege to those who have done good deeds for our school and children, had an accomplishment or collected box tops to earn the pass. What makes you (if I'm talking to you) feel like you don't have to do what others do to earn the privilege ? If you were born into privilege then please let me know and I will collect your $$$ for your passes for the year (Also, if you didn't know that a year if passes is a total of $450 for FHES by the way.)
