Schaumburg High School students enrolled in E101 English 1, E102 English 1, and E108 English 1, find their seats before the start of the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) Test on March 3.

District 211 participated in the PARCC Test on March 3. The PARCC website states: “The PARCC member states share this fundamental goal: ensuring that every student graduates from high school prepared for success in college and the workplace. The PARCC states’ high quality assessments will allow parents and educators to see how children are progressing in school and whether they are on track for postsecondary success. The PARCC assessment also provides teachers with the ability to identify students who may be falling behind and need extra help.”

Wes Bruce, off-site consultant for the Illinois State Board of Education, and Margaret Horn, vice president of State Engagement & Outreach for PARCC, Inc., visited Schaumburg High School during PARCC testing on March 3 to view the testing site and discuss District 211′s preparation and implementation of the test.
