AP testing begins in less than three weeks and we need several parents to proctor the 16 different exams being given at Newport. Proctoring involves handing out exam packets and periodically walking up and down the rows and looking around for any suspicious activity. You will be seated at a table so it is an ideal opportunity to get some work done, go through the mail, read a book, etc.

 

Please take a look at the following schedule and let Julie Freeman know at freemanhouse2010@comcast.net if you can take one or more shifts, including the date/time/subject of the exam. However, please note that we cannot allow parents to proctor a test which is being taken by their child.
