So what did Worcester do on PARCC?

  • you have the right to opt your child out, as has been the position of the district all along. Note that there was no vote taken on that tonight, as this was never an item before the committee.
  • we have a letter coming home to all parents and families from administration making this clear. As this letter already existed and now is public, we voted to file the item regarding this communication. 
  • there will be no statement coming from Worcester to the state regarding this issue; we will not be objecting to their position or legal argument. Note that this is a reversal of our previous position.
Or, if you're still confused, you can read Thomas Caywood's article, because he's got it right.
