* Elementary Standards-Based Report Cards - this site has a variety of resources for parents and community members to learn more about standards-based grading practices and to help parents better understand how to interpret the report cards
* PARCC Testing - Students in grades 3-8 will participate in the PARCC testing this year (as opposed to MCAS).  This site will provide more detailed information to parents about PARCC testing.
You can directly link to either of these websites through the links below:
