Parent/Guardian Resources for Understanding Your Child's PARCC Score

PARCC Your child's results on the first-year PARCC test (administered in the 2014-15 school year) are arriving! 
The PARCC tests measure whether students are meeting new, higher academic standards and mastering the knowledge and skills they need to progress in their K-12 education beyond. They test more complex skills, like critical-thinking, persuasive writing, and problem-solving - skills that were not measured on previous state tests. Your child's score may look different or lower on these new tests.  That does not mean students are learning less. It means the tests have changed and are asking students to meet a higher bar. Our District is providing parents and guardians access to a comprehensive PowerPoint presentation and a number of other informative links that will provide greater detail on PARCC testing and how to interpret your child's PARCC Assessment Score Report. In addition to these resources, we will be providing informational sessions for District parents/guardians in the coming weeks.
