PAGE 3: Current Issues Facing RI Students
Q5: Think for a moment about your district. What makes your district great? What makes you most proud?
Our district has a wonderful community, with great students, parents and teachers who truly care about education and developing well-rounded individuals who will succeed now and in the future.
Q6: What are the most important challenges you see in your district as we enter in to the 2015/2016 school year?
State mandates, learning what the expectations of the new commissioner will be, re-structuring the amount of testing that takes place and de-emphasizing the focus on testing, budgeting, implementing the new strategic plan, understanding and respecting parental rights in regards to testing and vaccinations
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 against 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?
No, I would not 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.
I am looking forward to the day when CC and PARCC exit the state of RI. The over emphasis on testing and data collection is having a detrimental effect on the quality of education our students are receiving.
