Letter to Parents (12/14/2015)
Last spring, the Glenbrook High Schools administered the new Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) test to students enrolled in Algebra 2 courses and junior English courses. This replaced the Prairie State Achievement Exam (PSAE). The purpose of the PARCC assessment is to measure each student’s attainment of the Illinois Learning Standards which were revised by the State in conjunction with the Common Core Standards in reading, writing and mathematics. NOTE: PARCC is not used for college admission. The ACT and SAT remain the recognized college entrance exams utilized by District 225 students.
Your student’s individual scores for these mandated, standardized assessments are enclosed for your review. Depending on the courses your student was enrolled in last year, you will receive either one or two reports.
Since PARCC is in its first year of implementation, schools do not have trend data from this exam demonstrating how our students perform over time. The PARCC test is just one measure of how well your child is performing academically. The Glenbrooks have access to other trend data, which demonstrate that our students generally perform well above state averages on standardized tests such as the ACT.
