Keep up with what's happening at PARCC.
The PARCC Educator Leader Cadres (ELCs) will 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 will organize a range of activities for their K-12 communities, each year, PARCC will bring together 24-member 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. The meetings will be an opportunity for educators to build expertise in the CCSS and PARCC by engaging in deep analysis of the CCSS and aligned material such as the PARCC Model Content Frameworks and item prototypes.
The first meetings of the Educator Leader Cadres took place in July and August 2012 and the second took place in February and March 2013.
