PARCC Update

Posted: April 27, 2015

This week, District 7 3rd -8th grade students and high school students enrolled in select courses will participate in the PARCC (Partnership for the Assessment of Readiness for College and Career) assessments.

The PARCC assessment is one test with two parts. Students took the first part, known as the performance-based assessment (PBA) in March. The PBA measured critical thinking, reasoning and application skills through “extended tasks” such as written answers or multi-step math problems.

The end-of-year assessment (EOY), being administered this week, consists of short answer questions and questions that measure skills like reading comprehension, vocabulary and math proficiency.

The Illinois State Board of Education has informed us that we can anticipate test results after Thanksgiving. We will share those results with you as they become available.

Intermediate High Math Program

Posted: March 19, 2015

The District would like to correct inaccurate information that is being circulated by some of our parents. According to these individuals, the District has eliminated the intermediate high math program, an assertion that is not accurate.

I want to assure parents that the intermediate high math program has not been eliminated but rather has been redesigned to expand opportunities to include more students. Approximately 40 K-12 teachers on the math curriculum committee worked over a three-year period to design the new K-12 math curriculum to prepare District 7 students to meet the challenge of the variety of courses available at the high school level.

PARCC Student Assessment

Posted: March 2, 2015

In recent days, I’ve received a few emails and phone calls from parents regarding the security of the PARCC student assessment data. The two questions that have been asked of me are:

     Who can access the data?

     Does the state provide data to a third-party vendor?

I called State Superintendent Chris Koch on Monday, March 2, 2015, and asked him to clarify those two questions. Please find answers to these questions by accessing Student Data Privacy Protection Fact Sheet via this link http://www.isbe.net/pdf/studentdataprivacy-factsheet.pdf.
