SPONSORS

Test sponsors must be members in good standing of the national AATSP (chapter membership is automatic upon joining the National organization). Sponsors assume the following responsibilities:

  • Teachers may only register students who are currently enrolled in their classes. To ensure that students are enrolled in the registering teacher's class, both the NSE Office and chapter coordinators reserve the right to request that each participating teacher submit an official class list signed by an administrator.
