Putnam Principal selected to participate in state assessment advisory panel

Cynthia Sanchez

(PUTNAM ELEMENTARY SCHOOL -- Jan. 13, 2020) — A new Texas law requiring the state to look at new instruments to assess the progress of students will get valuable input and guidance from an experienced EPISD school administrator. 

Putnam Elementary School Principal Cynthia Sanchez was nominated and appointed by Texas Education Commissioner Mike Morath to serve on the Educator Advisory Committee for the implementation of House Bill 3906, which requires the Texas Education Agency to develop academically appropriate state assessment instruments. 

Sanchez was selected to participate because of her vast knowledge of pedagogy and student assessment. 

She will attend the first meeting of the advisory committee later this month. Thank you for representing the children of El Paso and EPISD at the statewide level!
