Who wants to oversee Florida's testing program?
Jay Pfeiffer, for years Florida's deputy commissioner of accountability, research and measurement, quietly retired this month, leaving a key spot at the DOE ripe for the taking.
For now, assistant deputy commissioner Jeff Sellers is holding down the fort. But the department is conducting a national search for a full-time replacement to manage the 100-person division responsible for assessments and accountability (among other things).
The application deadline is tomorrow (Jan. 30). Proact Search, which brought Eric J. Smith to the commissioner's chair, is running the show.
