Franklin County Schools hires director of student accountability: Joshua Griffin

Franklin County Schools is pleased to announce the hiring of its new Director of Testing and Student Accountability. Joshua Griffin is scheduled to start the position on Monday, October 28th.

Griffin will be responsible for providing leadership for the district’s testing and accountability program, as well as its student information system: PowerSchool. Griffin will also prepare testing-results reports, reflecting school profiles and district profiles for each academic area measured. The position is vital to school improvement planning as it assists schools and district personnel with data disaggregation, which helps them interpret results and identify logical next steps to maximize student academic outcomes.

“We are excited to welcome Mr. Griffin to his new position within our district,” said Dr. Rhonda Schuhler, Superintendent of Franklin County Schools. “His in-depth knowledge of the state testing program, mathematics accountability standards, data literacy skills and knowledge of curriculum development will help us raise the bar for students and teachers across our district.”

Griffin previously served as a mathematics teacher with the Wake County Public School System. He later worked with the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction as a test measurement specialist for mathematics.

He earned a bachelor’s and master’s in mathematics education from North Carolina State University (NCSU). He is currently working on his dissertation for the Doctor of Philosophy degree in mathematics education from NCSU, which he expects to complete by the end of 2019.
