Dear Parents, Guardians and Community Members,

The Beverly School District notified the DESE (Department of Elementary and Secondary Education) that we will administer the PARCC (Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers) in Grades 3 to 8 in all schools for the 2014-2015 school year. We will also administer the PARCC Assessment in Grades 9 and 11 if state funding allows.
10th Grade students will continue to take MCAS in 2014-2015. Our goal will be to administer the computer-based version of PARCC in the schools with that capability. We are upgrading our infrastructure and the tools teachers need to instruct in a 21st Century learning environment. In particular, we are focusing on the elementary schools this year.

There will be more information to follow once students return to school in September. This is an exciting time for education in Beverly. We thank you for partnering with us in the education of the children of Beverly.

Steven A. Hiersche, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
