Jinger Carter elected to statewide assessment post | Schools
Henderson County Schools Director of Accountability and Assessment, Jinger Carter, has been elected President of the Kentucky Association for Assessment Coordinators.
A Union County native, Carter recently organized the 2012 Scott Trimble Workshop in Louisville, which brought together more than 500 educators from across Kentucky. Attendees were able to take part in workshop sessions focused on enhancing teaching, learning and assessment across the Commonwealth. Educators who took part in the event shared innovative solutions for improving student achievement, networked with colleagues and education experts, explored exhibits provided by vendors from across the country and returned home with powerful strategies, interventions and ideas.
“The Kentucky Association for Assessment Coordinators selection of Jinger Carter as the incoming president of the organization merely validates what those of us who work with her on a daily basis recognize and applaud. Her assessment knowledge base, her dynamic inter-personal skills, planning strengths and leadership will continue to create an organization that is sufficiently flexible and versatile,” said Dr. Thomas L. Richey, Superintendent for Henderson County Schools. He continues, “She recognizes that good planning shapes good decisions. In assuming the position of President of KAAC, she will continue to guide the organization with the belief that quality has to be caused, not controlled. She is an exemplary choice for this important leadership role.”
Carter will serve as President of the Kentucky Association for Assessment Coordinators until October 2013. Her duties include presiding at all meetings of the association whose purpose is to act as an advocate for appropriate instructional assessment practices and provide a network of support and information for assessment coordinators.
