PHARR- PSJA ISD Director of Assessment Frances Palacios was recently awarded the Texas State Network of Assessment Professionals Regional Recognition Award at the 2017 Texas Assessment Conference held Nov. 7 in Austin Texas.

Now in its 32nd year, the Texas Assessment Conference remains the only statewide conference dedicated to providing the latest information on assessment, testing, and accountability in education — elementary, secondary, and post-secondary. During the conference, attendees receive the most current information from state agencies and policymakers, as well as benefit from sharing the best implementation practices in schools, districts, colleges, and universities.

Palacios was nominated by the Region One district testing coordinators for her service and dedication.
