Educator Leader Cadres

The PARCC Educator Leader Cadres (ELCs) help each state build and expand the number of educators who understand, support and feel ownership of the successful implementation of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and PARCC assessments.

While states organize a range of activities for their K-12 communities, each year, PARCC will bring together teams of K-16 educators from across PARCC states to develop expertise on the CCSS and PARCC and to help them become leaders in their states and among their peers. These meetings, both virtual and in-person, are opportunities for educators to build expertise in the CCSS and PARCC by engaging in deep analysis of the CCSS and aligned materials such as the PARCC Model Content Frameworks, sample items, assessment blueprints and more.

ELC members have now met multiple times throughout the past two years. For all materials developed for these meetings by PARCC, ELC members and National Math and Science Initiative staff, please go here.

More information about the development and purpose of the ELCs can be found here.
