FOR THE DAILY SOUTHERNER
Janet Morris, Edgecombe County Public Schools (ECPS)’ Director of Accountability and Testing, was named the ECPS Employee of the Month for June 2013. She was honored at the June 24 board of education meeting by the board and Superintendent John Farrelly.
Morris joined ECPS in 2006 as a data analyst. She came to ECPS from Hertford County, where she served as a director of federal and special programs for seven years.
The three different people nominated Morris and said her diligence and attention to detail make the difference in testing at ECPS and that while the development of the Common Exams was a team effort, Morris’ leadership role in the administration and scoring of those exams was what drove the process.
Employees of the month are recognized for excellence in performance, going above and beyond job expectations, performing a distinguished deed or serving as a role model for advancing the goals and mission of ECPS.
