Dear parents,

NFB is currently investigating the accessibility features available for the spring 2014 PARCC field test.  School districts were notified in the fall of 2013 whether or not they would be included in the testing.

If your child is scheduled to participate in either the PARCC Performance-Based Assessment or End-of-Year Assessment, NFB needs to hear from you.

Please call Valerie Yingling, paralegal, at 410-659-9314 x 2440 if your child will participate in the testing.  If you are unsure of whether or not your child will be involved, ask your school's principal.  If your child will not be included in the testing because his or her accommodations will not be available, please, also call Valerie Yingling.

PARCC field tests may be conducted in the following states and district:  Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, District of Columbia, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Mississippi, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Tennessee.

For more information on the PARCC field test please see http://www.parcconline.org/field-test.
