  • PARCC

We have FINALLY received our PARCC assessment data from Spring 2015 (just in time for the holidays). Teachers you should now have access to the results broken down by school and individual score reports as well as links/resources related to interpreting the scores and information for conversations with parents. Parents will receive a letter from Dr. Smith along with individual score reports in the next few days. I will be scheduling a parent night to discuss PARCC on Tuesday, January 5th.
