Dear Parent or Guardian:
District 158 will administer the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) assessments between April 4 and April 29. Students in grades 3-8 and in high school English I and Algebra I courses will be tested in English Language Arts and Math. This is the second year Illinois has participated in the PARCC assessment. The 2016 exam has a simpler format including one testing window instead of two separate testing experiences during the year.
