Proctor training for Central Services Administrators is underway and organizers are issuing the call for assistance. Proctors serve an important role as an additional monitor who helps the test administrator to ensure testing occurs fairly and uniformly. Proctors are assigned by school Test Coordinators to assist during the administration of testing to all students in grades third through eighth and in high school courses for which an End of Course or NC Final Exam is administered.
Proctors are desperately needed during the last two weeks of school, as all testing must be given during the last 5 to 10 days before the last day of school for each calendar type, such as all year round tracks and modified calendar schools.
All proctors must attend a test administration training session and agree to fulfill the duties described. Community members are also encouraged to sign up to proctor and are welcome to contact the schools of their choice to offer their time. Volunteers will be trained to serve as a proctor by the school test coordinator. If an individual has not signed up to volunteer in our schools previously, WCPSS provides a volunteer sign-up process that is open on Mondays between 8 a.m.-4 p.m. The sign up process for volunteers will end on May 19. If you wish to participate, please sign up by May 19th at: http://www.wcpss.net/community/volunteer.html
WCPSS staff who want to volunteer assisting schools as they scramble to prepare for end of year testing can receive proctor training provided by the Testing Office. All WCPSS Central Services Administrators interested in supporting the schools and serving as a proctor can sign up for a training session in eSchools . If you are trained by the Testing Office, you will not need to be trained at the school and vice versa. Testing Administrators say it’s a perfect opportunity for everyone to come together to support our schools and our students!

When: Tuesday, May 13, at 1:00 PM
