One of AAPS Superintendent Dr. Jeanice Swift’s action steps at the conclusion of the Listen and Learn: We Are Ann Arbor Tour was to establish an Assessment Advisory Task Force.
The purpose of the task force is to examine current assessment practices, understand state requirements (which are currently in transition), clarify core values around assessment and bring forward proposals to inform and advise an amended Assessment Plan for 2014-2015.
The task force will review the effectiveness of current district assessments and testing policies and develop a rationale for a balanced approach to assessment in the district and provide recommendations to the Superintendent for future improvements.
The Superintendent invites all interested individuals to apply for membership. Task Force members must be able to commit to meet twice per month beginning in February 2014 and extending through June 2014 with recommendations presented to the Superintendent in the spring. Meetings will be held from 4-6 on weekdays.
