Core Beliefs

The Division of Assessment, Planning & Evaluation is responsible for coordinating and implementing student assessment throughout the district.
Our goals are to:

  • Manage federal, state, and district testing initiatives
  • Provide accurate and timely information regarding testing purposes, procedures, and results (national, state, district) to relevant school and district staff
  • Assist and advise on the development and adoption  of assessments

 

The Division of Assessment, Planning & Evaluation supports all levels of the organization to ensure that student achievement results are used to drive instructional decisions and improve learning opportunities for all students.
