Stepping Up with PARCC
March 4, 2015
Alain Locke Charter School, Gym
Childcare and Refreshments will be provided
All students deserve access to a world-class education that will prepare them for success in college and careers. To work toward that goal, Illinois voluntarily adopted new, more rigorous academic standards in 2010 called the Common Core Standards.
Starting March 10th, every 3rd-8th grade student will be taking his/her first PARCC assessment in math and English language arts. This assessment is designed to measure students’ progress toward the more rigorous Common Core Standards. These assessments are designed to serve as an educational GPS system, identifying where students are excelling and where they may need extra help to get where they need to be.
If interested, please join us on March 4th at 5:15 p.m. to learn more about the new PARCC assessment. Also, don’t forget to attend Report Card-Pick up on March 20th. Talking with your child’s teachers about your child’s strengths and weaknesses will help you determine which skills to reinforce at home.
Working together we can ensure that each student is ready to pursue any path in the future! We hope to see you at the meeting!
