Algiers Charter Updates Network’s Testing Policy
Rene Lewis-Carter reassigns employees to serve as test coordinators at each of its schools.
New Orleans, LA – As part of Algiers Charter’s increased focus on academics, and to establish a quicker line of communication to the network’s administration and board of directors, Algiers Charter Interim CEO Rene Lewis-Carter recently updated the association’s testing policy, which was approved by the AC board in the fall. The updated policy appoints new test coordinators at each of its six campuses:
• Martin Behrman Charter
• Dwight D. Eisenhower Charter
• William J. Fischer Charter
• McDonogh #32 Charter
• Algiers Technology Academy
• Landry-Walker High
AC Executive Director of Instruction Faydra Alexander is leading the network’s testing strategy; and all test coordinators, including those who have previously served in that capacity, are receiving extensive training to support their role.
“This addition to the testing policy is one of many steps we’ve taken to increase our academic focus across all Algiers Charter campuses,” said Lewis-Carter. “Our mission has always stated that educating young people is our top priority, and I intend to ensure we meet those expectations; our parents deserve that, and most importantly, our children deserve that.”
At each campus, teachers and students are preparing for upcoming Louisiana standardized tests, LEAP and EOC, which are scheduled to begin on April 25, 2016.
With a mission to deliver and support academic excellence, Algiers Charter is the largest independent Charter Management Organization in the Gulf South. Today, Algiers Charter serves over 4,300 Pre-K through 12th grade students on six campuses.
