The 2015-2016 school year is the second year students in grades 3-8 and high school will take the PARCC assessments in English Language Arts/Literacy and Mathematics.
PARCC helps teachers and parents determine if younger students are acquiring skills and knowledge needed to advance to the next grade level, while older students can see if they are on track to graduate, ready for college and careers.
