DPS needs Community Members and Parent Volunteers to help with Testing

The end of the school year is quickly approaching and with that brings many tests for our students to endure.  New legislation requires all high schools to administer final exams during the last five days of each semester.  In addition, all schools will be administering end of grade and end of course exams.

Due to policies set forth by the NC Department of Public Instruction, each of these tests require proctors (observers) be present during testing.  This is where you come in!
DPS needs volunteers to serve as proctors for all schools through June 9, but we have a greater need at our high schools. If you are interested in volunteering on the following dates please contact Regina Nickson  at the phone and email below.  She will send your contact information to the testing coordinator for placement.

Hillside HS 6/4-6/6 and 6/9 am
Southern HS 5/23, 5/27-30 am
Northern HS 6/4-6/6 and 6/9 am
Jordan HS 5/27- 6/1 am

If you have any questions please contact your school or Regina Nickson at 919-560-2082.

Thank you for taking the time to volunteer to help our kids get through the stressful end of the year testing process!

I have done this before. It is actually interesting to see the process of testing generally. The students seem very focused and serious about their work.
