Common Core Numbers Released

November 7th, 2015 by WCBC Radio

The data released on Thursday for Maryland’s new PARCC assessments at the high school level set a new baseline that will help to determine if students are on track to graduate ready for college or careers. The State data were released to the Maryland State Board of Education on October 27, 2015, and all county level data were released Thursday.  According to Superintendent of Schools, Dr. David Cox said the new curriculum standards have raised the bar to a much more rigorous level, and student progress is being measured with an entirely different measuring stick with the PARCC assessments. He says efforts will  continue to make adjustments as necessary to increase student learning. He says a full report on the local numbers will be discussed in greater detail  during the school board’s Tuesday work session, saying that there is additional data needed before any thorough analysis can be discussed
