Assessment Department Overview

  • The Assessment Department facilitates implementation of the Strategic Plan by providing thoughtful, directed, specific data and support to teachers, school sites, district departments, parents and community members. 

    Primary functions include: 

    • coordination of federal and state, college and career readiness, and locally–administered assessments 
    • support and assistance with the formative assessment process, including local interim and diagnostic assessments to support and inform instruction
    • providing leadership in professional learning around the use of data and the development of assessment tools for all levels of administration
    • provide ongoing support to sites as related to federal, state, college and career, and local assessments
      • assists sites with administrative procedures and protocols of all assessments
      • provides instructional support related to supporting student achievement

    The multiple assessment opportunities constitute a vital component of an effective, well-balanced instructional program and support teachers’ ability to plan effectively, monitor student progress in standards-based instruction, and determine the efficacy of instruction and intervention matched to student need. This framework is grounded in the use of assessments to monitor student progress in standards-based instruction.
