What's on the Agenda?

This month, we'll update our Student Attendance and Teacher Attendance data. At the ES level, we'll take a look at mClass and STAR, and at the MS level, we'll look at your STAR data. We'll also spend a majority of our time reviewing how to access and analyze your school's benchmark data from Thinkgate. In addition, we'll begin our preparations at the MS and HS level for 1st Semester Roster Verification in EVAAS. We'll also talk about the upcoming release of the NC School Report Cards in February.

Merry Christmas from the Accountability Department!

We hope you have a wonderful Christmas and enjoy the holiday break with your family and friends. We also hope that Santa received your letter and didn't find your name on the naughty list. Our best wishes to you and yours for a fantastic holiday season! Enjoy your time off... you've earned it!
