“Updated” Test proctors needed
The testing season has begun and we are in need of proctors for various days throughout the months of April and May. Proctors must be approved volunteers and attend a short proctor training prior to testing. Proctors who have been trained already this school year do not need to be trained again.
We currently have a sign-up genius for the fourth wave of testing, which is for April 20th-May 1st.
If you are interested in signing up for dates that are not yet posted in sign-up genius please email Carlene Moody at Carlene.Moody@stjohns.k12.fl.us or call 547-7900.
