PARCC makes good sense!

PARCC assessments will provide parents with information about the performance of their children and they will provide teachers with information they can use to meet the individual learning needs of each of their students.

Because PARCC assessments are aligned with the our current learning standards, participation by all students helps school leaders understand whether classroom instruction is lining up with what students need to know. Teachers and schools will improve instruction based on this information.
