Common Core Standards and PARCC Assessment

In 2015, we had approximately 200 families attend a forum focused on essential information regarding the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and an overview of PARCC, the Illinois state-mandated CCSS assessment.  District 105 teachers also led breakout sessions allowing parents to experience the Common Core Standards "in action."  Below, you will find links to these grade level sessions.

PARCC testing includes all 3rd-8th grade students who participate in the online PARCC assessment in both math and English-language arts.  This testing will take place during the weeks of April 9th through April 27th.  It is important to point out that our 3rd-8th grade students will not be testing that entire time.  Our principals will create detailed schedules to stagger testing and maximize instructional blocks with students.  Principals and teachers will share testing schedule information for your child and school prior to the start of testing For more information on PARCC, please click HERE.
