The Accountability and Leadership Solutions Department has two trained assessment specialists to serve as your guide to understanding all aspects of state assessment. Both highly trained specialists are former District Testing Coordinators. We are dedicated to providing assistance and current assessment information regarding all issues and guidelines to assist in complying with federal and state requirements.

 

We offer training, support, and technical assistance to administrators, campus testing coordinators (CTCs), district testing coordinators (DTCs), and all-level leadership. Our focus is on both effectiveness and efficiency in assisting public school district and public charter schools in managing all aspects of statewide assessment. Additionally, we provide supports aligning the areas of assessment and accountability. We also host TETN events to ensure timely communication of assessment-related information across the region. All TETN resources are posted in the Department Portal. On-site assistance also is available to new district coordinators with all assessment management areas, including preparation for online assessments.

 

For specialized training related to accommodations and modifications, please visit the Region 4 ESC Special Education Department site: Region 4 ESC Special Education Solutions.

 

District Testing Coordinator (DTC) Leadership Network 
The District Testing Coordinator Leadership Network is a committee of superintendent-appointed individuals. Members receive current national, state, and local information on all areas supporting statewide assessment. The goal of the committee is to identify trends and issues affecting districts, to give feedback on services provided by Region 4 ESC, and to network with other professionals.
For registration information, please contact Richard Blair.
