As an association, we believe that standardized assessments play an important role in guaging the work of a school. However, we also feel that the rushed implementation, on a state-level, of the new PARCC assessment system has had a negative impact on our schools, our administration, our members, and, most importantly, our students. We think that you should consider the impact that PARCC has had on your work and your students.
If you feel that PARCC should be implemented slower or differently, or, if students should have the legal right to “opt-out” of an assessment system, you shuold contact your State Senator. Please click on the following link, provided by our state-level education association, NJEA, to contact your State Senator.

**PLEASE NOTE: CamVoc Education Association does not in anyway support or condone CamVoc members talking negatively about PARCC, or any other state-wide assessment, with students or parents during school hours. Please follow all disrict directives regarding these conversations.
