Dennis Villano the District’s Director of Technology Integration introduced the staff to “PARCC” a new online state assessment that will replace the traditional MCAS tests.  Students will be taking the new assessment in the subject areas of math and English language arts.  The teachers also listened to Director of Student Information, Josh Murphy as he described procedures for teachers to open their Aspen grade book for student and parent review.  During the third and fourth quarters of the school year, students will be able to go online to check their grades.  All teachers were also given time to meet and collaborate regarding their curriculums and the new Common Core expectations.
