PAGE 4: Requiring PARCC Testing

Q7: Does your district have a policy that requires students to participate in state wide testing (like PARCC)?


Yes, and I voted to support the policy that requires it. (skip to question 9)


Q8: While there is not a state mandate to require students to participate in state assessments like PARCC, some districts have passed local policies that would require participation in the state assessments. If your district were to propose a policy to require participation in state assessments, would you vote in favor of that policy?


Yes, I would vote in favor of a policy requiring students to participate in state assessments.


Q9: If you have other comments on PARCC or other testing policies, please share them here.
