TO: Division Superintendents
FROM: Richard T. La Pointe
Superintendent of Public Instruction
SUBJECT: Identification of Division Directors of Testing

 
  Each year the Department of Education requests that
  Division Superintendents designate  Division Directors of
  Testing.  This memo conveys the request for the 1997-98
  school year.  The Division Directors of Testing are the
  official contacts for all activities related to state
  assessment programs.  It is to these persons that all state
  assessment-related correspondence and questions are directed
  by the Department.

  You are being asked in this memo to designate: (1) a
  Division Director of Testing for the Literacy Passport
  Testing (LPT) Program and (2) a Division Director of Testing
  for the Standards of Learning and norm-referenced program
  (the Stanford).  These designations may, as in the past, be
  the same person.

  Attached is a listing of the Division Directors of
  Testing designated by you for the previous (1996-97) school
  year.  Please use this form to update your designations of
  Division Directors of Testing for 1997-98, review and
  correct mailing addresses and phone/fax numbers.  These
  forms should be returned to the Division of Assessment and
  Reporting by July 29, 1997.  Questions should be directed to
  Cameron Harris at (804) 225-2913.  Thank you for taking the
  time to update this information.
