DOE Guidance on Proctoring for Exams

If your school is administering the New York State grades 3-8 math exam today and tomorrow (May 1 and 2), you should review the following DOE guidelines::

Proctoring Guidelines: Please note that paraprofessionals and school aides cannot serve as test-room proctors. You should instead schedule paraprofessionals and school aides to serve as hall monitors to ensure that students do not leave the test room unescorted until they have completed their exams. Guidance counselors cannot serve as test-room proctors or hall monitors unless it is an emergency (i.e., other staff are unavailable). For additional information on proctoring responsibilities, see NYSED's English Language Arts and Mathematics Tests School Administrator's Manual.

If you are assigned as a proctor or hall monitor, please contact Rosemarie Thompson at Please also inform your school's UFT chapter leader.
