The New Jersey Parent Teacher Association (NJPTA) has developed an initiative to help parents, students, teachers, and all community members to better understand PARCC and the reasons that the members of We Raise NJ support these assessments. You can log onto BestFootForwardnj.org and take a look at all of the available resources, especially the video on the home page in which a student explains to parents why he is excited to take the exams.
The site features resources and information designed to speak directly to parents. Some of these resources were developed specifically for Best Foot Forward, while others are catalogued from our We Raise NJ partner organizations.
If you would like weekly PARCC tips, as well as important updates about the testing dates, to be delivered to your mobile phone, you can sign-up now by texting PREP to 9-7-7-7-9. This is not meant to be test prep, but rather short, simple things parents can do to help their child feel ready and confident come test day.
Please like and follow We Raise NJ on social media and stay informed throughout the PARCC testing period.
