Parent Volunteers for End of Grade Testing

From our school’s Testing Coordinator: “We are in need of hallway monitors for EOG testing. EOG testing at Alston Ridge will take place on the following days:

If you are able to volunteer your time, please Sign Up to let us know the day(s) you are available. If you have any questions, please contact Erika Emelle at 919-544-2474 x20161 or by email at eemelle@wcpss.net. Thank you so much!

Hallway monitors will need to arrive to school by 9:10 am on testing days and should be registered as volunteers. Testing should be completed by 1:00 pm on ELA testing days and 12:00 pm on Math and Science testing days.

As a hallway monitor, you can read a book, draw, knit, or work on a computer/electronic device. We simply ask that you make sure  hallways are quiet to ensure that we have the best testing environment for our students. Volunteers will also be provided walkie-talkies to contact the testing coordinator or office if needed.
