ADMINISTRATIVE


TO:

Division Superintendents

 

FROM:

Jo Lynne DeMary

Superintendent of Public Instruction

 

SUBJECT:

Identification of Division Directors of Testing

 

Each year the Department of Education requests division superintendents to designate division directors of testing. This memo conveys the request for the 2004-2005 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 of Education.

 

The division director of testing (DDOT) information is now being collected through the School and Staff Administration Data Collection (refer to Administrative Supts. Memo No. 26, dated June 11, 2004). The DDOT has been added as one of the applications/programs for which contact information is required. The school and staff administration contact person should identify the DDOT contact through the Web-based data entry form.

 

The second page of the school and staff administration verification report requires the superintendent's signature to certify that the DDOT contact information has been accurately reported. Please return the verification form to the Division of Assessment and Reporting by August 2, 2004.

 

Should you have questions please call the Division of Assessment and Reporting at (804) 225-2102 or email darfax@mail.vak12ed.edu.

 

Thank you for taking the time to update this information.
