Keep up with what's happening at PARCC.
PARCC is a consortium of states committed to improving college and career readiness by raising standards and helping students and educators achieve them. State Chiefs serve on the Governing Board and set policy for the consortium. A subset of the Governing Board states serves on the PARCC Executive Committee to provide guidance on time-sensitive issues as they arise. Maryland serves as the fiscal agent for the PARCC consortium.
States also have one representative on the PARCC K-12 Leadership Team. The K-12 Leadership Team is responsible for coordinating all aspects of the development of PARCC assessments. It directs all of PARCC’s operational programs and serves as the conduit to the Technical Advisory Committee and the Governing Board. There are a wide range of committees, working groups and teams of education leaders tasked with specific advisory, technical and operational goals. These committees are responsible for structuring and leading the major assessment design and development activities. Parcc Inc. is the nonprofit project management partner for the PARCC consortium and facilitates the activities of the consortium and helps ensure the PARCC states’ vision is fully realized.
