PARCC

Dear Parents/Guardians,

 

In the spring of 2018, our students will be taking a PARCC assessment test in grades 6-8 (English Language Arts(ELA)/Mathematics), Algebra 1, and English 10. (April 20 – June 1, 2018)

The test known as PARCC, stands for Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers and is based on assessing a student’s knowledge and understanding of the Common Core State Standards.

As we begin to prepare our students for these exams, I wanted to provide you with information that will help explain more about both the Common Core Standards and the PARCC initiative.  I have included some helpful links to websites you may wish to visit.

I encourage you to visit these sites and help partner with us.
