What was the resolution on PARCC and Common Core

Yesterday, the MASC Delegates Assembly adopted the following:

Resolution 7: Passed by the Mass Association of School Committees 11/5/14 (vote of 69-21-3 as amended)

Whereas many districts have expressed immense concern relative to our state’s evaluation instruments, and
Whereas assessing student achievement is important to all school districts.

Therefore be it resolved that the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education re-examine Common Core standards and PARCC and conduct further examination of options for a state evaluation and accountability system and to substantially involve educators and school committee members in the process of choosing an assessment instrument, and to refrain from committing to any instrument before this process is complete.
