Superintendent Message

Dear Parents and Guardians:

Illinois is one of the states participating in the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC). This computer-based assessment, which measures students' knowledge and skills in math, reading, and writing relative to the new Illinois learning standards, will replace the ISAT and PSAE in the 2014-2015 school year.

Prior to implementation of the PARCC test district-wide, we must conduct field tests this spring to determine what adjustments need to be made before the test is fully implemented next year.

Some of your children will be randomly selected to participate in the field testing at his/her school. Those students that participate will receive an additional two to six hours of testing this spring. Though these students will not receive their results, participation in the field test will be critical to the implementation of this test for our district.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation on this matter. Please contact your child's principal or my office if you have any questions regarding the PARCC assessment in general or specific concerns related to the field testing.

 

 

Creg E. Williams, Ed.D.
Superintendent
