OPPORTUNITY FOR SCIENCE TEACHERS

I wanted to share a website with you that Science teachers might find helpful.  It is www.need.org.  If you have schools that are part of an electric co-op that is partnered with Tri-State, they can apply to attend a conference in Westminster, CO in the summer.  Travel and hotel expenses are covered, and the great part is that every teacher that participates receives a science kit at the beginning of the school year.

SPRING PARCC ADMINISTRATION WINDOW BEGINS

An estimated 2.4 million students will take PARCC assessments this spring, with some schools in Illinois having started this past week. Parents and students are encouraged to check with their local school district for more information on when their school will be administering assessments. The PARCC website has a wealth of resources for parentsteachers, and students in every state, including information on how assessments are developed and how they will be administered. The website also features information on test accessibilitystudent data security, and more. In addition, more than 1,400 authentic released items from the first two years of PARCC testing are available to view online, while the test administration resources portal features technology readiness tools for teachers and administrators, practice tests for students, training modules for test administrators and coordinators, and much more. Understandthescore.org also has detailed information on last year’s score reports, including score report examples from each state, designed to provide another important resource for preparing for this year’s assessments.
