PARCC Results

 In the coming weeks parents will receive the results of their children’s Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC.) These results are for the Spring 2016 English Language Arts and mathematics state assessments in grades 3 to 10. The individualized reports will show how each student performed on the tests, and where those scores fall compared to the average scores for other students in Rhode Island and the district.

The reports will also show whether a student has met the standard in the assessed area, and will identify specific strengths and weaknesses based on the results.Individual students will receive PARCC scores for Mathematics and English-Language Arts. Scores show a student’s readiness for college and careers, using the scale belwow:
o Score of 5: Exceeded expectations
o Score of 4: Met expectations
o Score of 3: Approaching expectations
o Score of 2: Partially met expectations
o Score of 1: Did not meet expectations
North Smithfield Schools exceeded the state average at almost every level and showed significant improvement in participation. North Smithfield High School was recognized in the area of  mathematics in a press release from the RI Department of Education for improvement: "North Smithfield High School, up 29 points in achievement and 32 points in participation."
Administrators and teachers use this data to inform curriculum and instructional decisions. While we will continue to work towards improving student achievement meeting these more rigorous standards, we are pleased that NS Schools are making improvements. We certainly expect further improvements as we deepen implementation of rigorous standards.

Dear Family,

For your child's "Summer Math Work", he/she can complete a BINGO sheet on IXL.  All students who return a completed sheet will be entered into a drawing to be "Principal for a Day" with me! :)

Please download the grade your child is entering and use it to help maintain his/her excellent skills!
