Although the temperatures have not quite signaled the beginning of fall, Sept. 22 does officially mark the end of summer.
As the leaves on the trees start to change color, we are experiencing more change with our team. Two Starkville-Oktibbeha Consolidated School District educators have joined our ranks.
Brian Dorsey joined us from Armstrong Middle School. Brian, a former information and communication technology teacher, has more than 10 years of teaching experience at the middle school and high school levels. We are excited to have him take over many of the core assessment processes.
Mike Adam also joined our team this month. Mike, who last taught at Starkville High School, has more than
14 years science teaching experience in both online and traditional formats at the secondary and postsecondary levels. He now manages the RCU's standard-setting and psychometric processes.
As a reminder, we are discontinuing assessment's use of the listservs in lieu of the use of this monthly newsletter and the RCU website. We think streamlining of our communication will ensure everyone gets news in a timely manner.
I hope the school year has started smoothly and that 2018-2019 turns into a great year for each of you!
