PARCC Walk Out Statement

We understand that there is concern regarding the new PARCC assessments.  There are 4 key reasons you should participate and do your best for yourself and your school.
 
1.           First, Federal law requires the participation of all students.  Furthermore, the test is part of the NM state graduation testing requirements.  State rules require that students exhaust their opportunities to pass the SBA and/or PARCC before being allowed to move on to the Alternative Demonstration of Competency.  Therefore, if you do not participate in the PARCC testing, there is the potential for you to jeopardize the ability to obtain a high school diploma.  Schools do not have the ability to opt out of the assessment.
2.         Second, taking the test now gives you an opportunity to become familiar with taking an online test and allows you to do better the next time you take it.  This situation is similar to taking the ACT test.  Many students do better the second time they test which enhances their scores as they prepare for college and career.
3.         Third, we are proud of our school, our teachers, students and our reputation for excellence.   The federal law requires that 95% of our students participate in the assessment or our school grade will be dropped one letter grade.  We are an A school and have the highest graduation rate because of the hard work each day of students and staff.  Our reputation for high expectations and high student achievement impacts our community in many positive ways.
4.         Finally, we know in good conscience you would not want to distract others in the school who may share different views with any disruptive behavior.

We have received rumors of planned walk outs.  A decision to participate in a walk-out will result in an unexcused absence.  Our campuses have and continue to work on having a positive and respectful climate for everyone.  Therefore, under no circumstances will disruption or disorderly conduct be tolerated and such behavior will be addressed through the disciplinary matrix.  Students who choose to walk out must leave campus without disruption.   Students will be counted as “unexcused for the day” which means loss of credit for classes / work missed. 

In closing, the testing requirements stem from federal law.  The federal Congress is currently considering changes to the law (the ESEA act).  A productive way to voice your opinion about changing the testing requirements is to contact your federal representative and senators as well as the Secretary of Education, Hanna Skandera.
