PARCC has released the Accommodations Manual for public comment through May 13, 2013. Representatives from Arizona’s Department of Education have been intimately involved and influential in the development of this document and would like to invite questions and feedback from the field.
In order to facilitate this, a webinar has been scheduled for Thursday, May 2, 2013, from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. It is critical that district leadership and EL specialists, as well as general education and special education teachers understand the accommodation proposals contained in the manual. Many of the accessibility features of the new PARCC assessment will impact general education students as well as those with special needs. The PowerPoint presentation will highlight features of the document as well as provide opportunities for questions and feedback.
Please plan to join us for this informative presentation. Registration is available through the following link: https://www3.gotomeeting.com/register/449310806.
Please direct questions to Pat Reynolds at Patricia.Reynolds@azed.gov or via phone, 602-364-1296.
Reminder, the period for public comments on the PARCC Accommodations Manual ends on May 13, 2013. Please visit the announcement from ADE Assessment here.
