Happy 3rd week of school!
I wanted to advise families of scholars in grades 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th that PARCC scores from school year 2017-2018 will be sent home with your scholars today, September 21. Please review the score reports.
The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) is a group of states working together to develop a set of assessments that measure whether students are on track to be successful in college and careers. Here is an attachment with resource to help you better understand your scholar’s score (Understand the Score). Our curriculum for all academic subjects is Common Core which is aligned to PARCC. Scholars in grades 3 though 8 will also participate in PARCC simulations starting in October to help them feel more comfortable with the assessment. We will have a PARCC Night for Families, again this year to give families a better understanding of the assessment.
