Information about the PARCC Student Assessment

PARCC stands for Partnership for Readiness for College and Career. In 2010 the New Mexico Public Education Department selected this assessment for students across our state to be implemented beginning in the school year 2014-2015. This assessment will replace the Standards-Based Assessment (SBA) in English Language Arts and Mathmatics. As a result, New Mexico PTA would like to provide you with links to current information so that you may have a better understanding about how you can support your student and school community in the implementation of the PARCC Assessment.

Visit the following links that provide additional information and brochures that can be
printed out to share with your school community.
