Volunteers Needed

Help keep our exam process ethical!

Why do we need proctors?

Courtney Elementary needs proctors for our End of Grade exams. The job of the proctor is to ensure that testing is completed equitably for all students and that the results reflect an accurate assessment of student knowledge. The proctor monitors the classroom as the teacher administers the exam.


*Parents are not permitted to proctor their own student's exam(s). They will be given a different grade to proctor.

Frequently Asked Questions

What do I have to do?

Attend a proctor training session, show up on the day for which you volunteered and monitor the classroom.

What is the time commitment?
The proctor training session is 15 minutes. The EOGs are scheduled 8 am until 12 pm. Some may run a bit longer, some may finish earlier.

When do I have to be at school?

  • Two sessions for proctor training will be offered: May 12 (beginning at 3:15 pm) and May 17 (beginning at 7:30 am). You may attend either one, but you must go through proctor training before you can volunteer.
  • On the day of the test, you need to be at school by 7:55 am.
