Burlington is working closely with the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, the MA Association of School Superintendents, the MA Teachers’ Association, and Revere Public Schools to communicate two districts’ journeys to implement the PARCC Test. We hope that all educators, students, parents, and anyone else interested in the transition from MCAS to PARCC will join the conversation on the MassPARCCTrial blog.
This blog is a clearing house of PARCC information including materials provided by the DESE and the PARCC Organization. In addition, the site will document the district-wide and school-wide implementations in Revere and Burlington – including feedback from students, teachers, test administrators, and technology staff.
Please post questions and comments. The decision whether to implement PARCC fully will be made in two years. It is critical that this decision be made with input from those directly impacted by the assessment.
