The Accountability and Leadership Solutions Department has trained assessment specialists to serve as your guide to understanding all aspects of state assessment. These 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 districts and public charter schools in managing all aspects of statewide assessment. Additionally, we provide support in aligning the areas of assessment and accountability. We also host TETN events to ensure timely communication of assessment-related information across the region. On-site assistance is also available to new district coordinators in 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.
