Nominees Sought for Four Open Governing Board Positions
Washington, D.C. — The National Assessment Governing Board will soon have openings for four new members. Created by Congress to oversee the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), also known as The Nation's Report Card, the Governing Board is a diverse group of leaders from multiple sectors that supports innovative developments in education.
NAEP is the gold standard for measuring U.S. student achievement. New Governing Board members will work to expand NAEP's impact and value in a time of rapid change for education standards and assessments. The U.S. Secretary of Education will appoint new members from a list of finalists.
You can nominate a qualified colleague or yourself for one of the four open positions. Those positions include Elementary School Principal, General Public Representative (2 positions) and Testing and Measurement Expert. Nominations are due by October 28, 2016.
