April 20, 2016

Dear parents,

The Pearson test site (PARCC) was unavailable statewide today. Therefore, PARCC testing originally scheduled for this morning, April 20th, at our high schools (Math - Day 3) and middle schools (English Language Arts - Day 1) has been postponed. To date, we have successfully completed all three high school ELA units as well as two of the three math units.

Our schools followed the regular schedule today, as the decision to postpone testing was made prior to the start of the test window. We anticipate resuming testing tomorrow at both high schools and all three middle schools.

Please see the revised test schedule below:

  • High School North and South will follow a “B” day schedule on Thursday, April 21st and administer the final PARCC assessment (Math – Day 3). Friday, April 22nd will be an “A” day.
  • Bayshore, Thompson and Thorne Middle Schools will administer PARCC on April 21, 22, 25, 26, 27, and 29, 2016.
