Dear Parents / Guardians

The Beverly school district has been selected to participate in the PARCC on-line “field-test”. The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) is a multi-state consortium working to develop a common set of computer based K-12 assessments in English Language Arts/Literacy and Mathematics linked to the new, rigors Common Core State Standards (CCSS). PARCC is one of two state consortia developing assessments aligned to the CCSS through the federal grant, Race To The Top. Beverly is a Race To The Top district.

Four schools from Beverly have been randomly selected by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) to participate in field testing PARCC . Randomly selected classes from Hannah, Cove, North Beverly and Briscoe will begin field testing this Spring. Students will not receive a score or grade based on her or his performance. Data from all states will be compiled and analyzed to develop computer based PARCC assessments linked to the Common Core. The projected roll-out of PARCC in Massachusetts will take place in the 2014-2015 school year for students in grades 3-11 and will eventually replace MCAS.


Thank you for your continued support and involvement in your child’s education. You may learn more about PARCC by contacting your building principal and by visiting www.doe.mass.edu/parcc and www.PARCConline.org.
