District staff Joanne Sanders, Leigh Austin, Rachel Benton and Kelly Cowell were recently recognized by the Board of Education and Superintendent Larry Cartner for participation in a K-3 Formative Assessment Pilot through the N.C. Department of Public Instruction.

Sanders is the ECPPS chief academic officer, Benton is an instructional coach for Northside Elementary and Austin and Cowell are instructional coaches for the district.

The assessment is a process used by teachers and students during instruction that provides feedback to adjust ongoing teaching and learning to help students improve their achievement of intended instructional outcomes.

The district received an appreciation award from DPI for leadership and participation in the K-3 Formative Assessment Process. The award was for participation in the pilot, which was for grades K-3 from 2015-2017.
