Putnam Principal selected to participate in state assessment advisory panel

A new Texas law requiring the state to look at new instruments to assess the progress of students will get valuable input and guidance from an experienced EPISD school administrator.

Putnam Elementary School Principal Cynthia Sanchez was nominated and appointed by Texas Education Commissioner Mike Morath to serve on the Educator Advisory Committee for the implementation of House Bill 3906, which requires the Texas Education Agency to develop academically appropriate state assessment instruments.

According to the Texas Education Agency,  House Bill (HB) 3906 “addresses several components related to assessments and administration that expands input from educators, provides more flexibility at the campus level for test administration, and more.”

The TEA website goes on to outline the committee’s duty and makeup.

This educator advisory committee will advise the commissioner and the agency on the development of academically appropriate state assessment instruments. The committee will be comprised of experts in curriculum and instruction, higher education, school leadership, and individuals with experience supporting special populations. The committee will provide advice on the design and implementation of changes contemplated for the state’s assessment program.

Sanchez was selected to participate because of her vast knowledge of pedagogy and student assessment.  She will attend the first meeting of the advisory committee later this month.

For the 2019-20 school year, Sanchez is celebrating her 25th year as an educator with EPISD, as well as her 11th year as an administrator.
