It shall be the responsibility of each superintendent or charter administrator to ensure that standardized tests are handled, stored, prepared for, and administered in accordance with this rule and test manuals provided by the department or testing vendors.

A. Superintendents and state charter administrators shall designate one DTC and may designate a secondary test coordinator for the purpose of delegating the duties necessary to comply with 6.10.7 NMAC.
B. Test administration at district charters shall be the responsibility of the DTC designated by the district superintendent. District charters may submit documented requests to designate their own test coordinator. Requests shall be submitted to and approved by the superintendent at the start of the school year. Failure to meet any standardized test administration policies or practices will result in removal of the district charter test coordinator without appeal. Upon such determination, all test coordination responsibilities shall defer back to the authorizing district's test coordinator.
C. The designation of district, charter, and secondary test coordinators shall:
(1) be in writing; and
(2) identify the name, title, and contact information of the person(s) so delegated.
D. The superintendent or charter administrator shall complete and return the verification of test security, staff training, and accommodations requirements documentation to the department within 10 business days after the close of all NMSAP testing at the end of each semester.
