Dear parents,

NFB is currently investigating the accessibility features available 
for the spring 2014 PARCC field test.  School districts were notified 
in the fall of 2013 whether or not they would be included in the testing.

If your child is scheduled to participate in either the PARCC 
Performance-Based Assessment or End-of-Year Assessment, NFB needs to 
hear from you.

Please call Valerie Yingling, paralegal, at 410-659-9314 x 2440 if 
your child will participate in the testing.  If you are unsure of 
whether or not your child will be involved, ask your school's 
principal.  If your child will not be included in the testing because 
his or her accommodations will not be available, please, also call 
Valerie Yingling.

PARCC field tests may be conducted in the following states and 
district:  Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, District of Columbia, 
Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Mississippi, 
New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, 
and Tennessee.

For more information on the PARCC field test please see
