! 9th Grade PARCC Testing Schedule
The Colorado State Assessment for all 9th grade students is the PARCC test. Regular classes will take place for all students that are not testing in PARCC, including those 9th grade students who are not participating in PARCC tests. 9th grade teachers will not introduce new content during the testing to accommodate students who participate in the PARCC tests. If a student feels they cannot miss a specific class period on one of these test days, administration staff will assist them on PARCC make-up test day, which is during PSAT10/SAT testing day, the morning of April 11.
The PARCC tests are for 9th only, and consist of 4.5 hours of Language Arts assessment and 4.5 hours of Math assessments. Visit Boulder Valley School District’s Frequently Asked Questions webpage for up to date information about state tests and options.
If parents want their student to participate they do not need to do anything, students are already preregistered for tests. If parents do not want their student to participate in PARCC, parents need to follow the instructions here to opt out for their student.
