The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) today announced the formation of a new non-profit organization to oversee the development of its next generation assessments. To date, PARCC has been a consortium of states with no legal status; under its new non-profit status, PARCC will become its own legal entity as a 501(c)(3).
The new non-profit will be governed by a Board of Directors comprised of PARCC state chiefs.
PARCC's top priority is successful and on-time development of assessments in grades 3-8 and high school. For more information, visit http://www.parcconline.org.
