The Illinois State Board of Education requires school districts to administer the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers annual assessment, commonly known as the PARCC assessment.

The assessment schedule provided by the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) for the 2015-2016 school year is shown in the table below.

PARCC Assessment Schedule – 2015-2016

Due to the amount of time students are required to test for PARCC and the schedule for when the PARCC testing occurs, the district will not administer the end of year Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) assessment for grades 3, 4, 5 and 8.

Please feel free to contact Amanda Walsh, Director of Innovative Learning, at awalsh@forestparkschools.org if you have any questions in regard to this adjustment.
