PARCC Resource Center

PARCC BigPARCC is based on the core belief that assessment should work as a tool for enhancing teaching and learning. Because the assessments are aligned with the new, more rigorous Common Core State Standards (CCSS), they ensure that every child is on a path to college and career readiness by measuring what students should know at each grade level. They will also provide parents and teachers with timely information to identify students who may be falling behind and need extra help.

Parents are invited to join the district's educational team for an informative presentation about the PARCC to elaborate on further details of the assessment (click to download the flyer). The evening meeting will take place on January 20th (snow date will Be January 22th) in the Harding Auditorium from 6-7 PM and in the Brearley Auditorium from 7:30-8:30 (please enter through the front door to enter building).
