As students across the district enter testing periods for their grade level, we know families are engaged in conversation about the value of standardized tests.  We wanted to use the start of the PARCC testing window to talk more about how our district views standardized tests – and why we’re committed to administering better tests, while reducing the overall number.

PARCC is test that meets our criteria: it is critical to providing effective feedback for teachers, parents, and students.

You’ll find more information here about what students can expect on the PARCC test, what resources are available to prepare, and the risks associated with not sitting for this exam.
