This is T now, who I have arranged to be my historian intern, doing independent research on primary sources on a segregation-era private park for African Americans that once occuppied the land where our school now stands.

Can you imagine sitting down to take a test on what you know, but the test is written in Russian? Then being told you scored very low and must work hard to catch up?

Come see your laws in action. Right now your local schools are looking for TCAP proctors. Many parent and community volunteers are needed for our schools during TCAP assessments which will take place this week.
During this time proctors are needed to help teachers monitor student test taking during the day. As a TCAP volunteer you will be asked to watch the children while they are being tested. A classroom teacher will also be in the room.
Monitors are asked to be there when the schools open. The opening time for each school varies.

During the past school year, the state opted out of the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) assessment, which was aligned with the Common Core standards implemented in and would have replaced TCAP and end-of-course exams for grades starting in the school year.
