A Message About PARCC From The Department of Student Learning
Next week, students in grades 3-5 will be participating in the PARCC (Partnership for the Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers) Assessment. The PARCC assessments identify students' current performance, point the way to what students need to learn to be ready for the next grade level and, by high school graduation, for college and/or a career. PARCC will be administered as a computer-based assessment.
During your child’s testing window, you can help your child do his/her best on the test by:
Headphones for PARCC - Grades 3, 4, 5
This is the very last Weekend Update reminder (we promise) about headphones. If your child in grades 3, 4, or 5 has not yet brought in headphones, it is very important that they do so on Monday. Please contact your child's teacher if you need any assistance.
