Proctors Needed!

What is a test proctor?

Test proctors are individuals who may assist in the administration of state testing for elementary, middle or high school students. State policies now require proctors to be present to ensure accountability and test security during final exams and all end-of-grade and end-of-course exams.


Dates to volunteer: June 2 - June 6, 2014
