PARCC Becomes a Non-Profit | Common Core science | Scoop.it

WASHINGTON - March 12, 2013 - 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). Launching the non-profit is the first step in the process to ensuring the PARCC assessment system can be sustained in the long term and beyond the U.S. Department of Education's Race to the Top Assessment grant period which ends in September 2014.
