What is PARCC?
The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) is a group of 11 states and the District of Columbia working together to develop a common set of computer-based K–12 assessments in English language arts/Literacy and math linked to the new, more rigorous Common Core State Standards (CCSS). The PARCC member states share this fundamental goal: ensuring that every student graduates from high school prepared for success in college and the workplace. The PARCC tests are high quality, computer-based K–12 assessments in mathematics and English language arts/literacy. They are carefully crafted to give teachers, schools, students and parents better and more useful information on how we’re preparing our kids for their futures. The PARCC assessments will be administered again in the spring of 2016. This year, the time frame for testing has been consolidated into a single window to reduce the negative impact on instructional time. If your child is in a tested grade (3-11), we strongly encourage his/her participation.
