PARCC for Parents – PARRC is the next generation MCAS test the state is piloting
Randolph students in grades 4 and 5 at the Donovan school, grade 4 at the Young School, grade 8 at the middle school as well as RHS 9th grades will be piloting the PARCC assessment.
The following comes to us from the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education
If you are a parent, teacher, or know of someone who has kids in the public school system, then this message is for you.
The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education is hosting local community meetings so that you can learn more about PARCC, a new, high quality, 21st century student testing program. PARCC may replace MCAS in the coming years.
The goal of PARCC is to measure student progress toward the state's new academic learning standards in English language arts and mathematics, which were adopted in 2010. Over the next two years, schools statewide will "test drive" PARCC before the state decides whether to fully adopt this new test.
The community meeting will provide an opportunity for educators, parents, and other stakeholders to ask questions and get additional information about this year’s field test—where students will be “testing the test”—as well as the first operational PARCC test scheduled for 2014-2015.

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
ATTENTION RANDOLPH RESIDENTS
With the present rainy season we have been experiencing, we are alerting all Randolph residents to take notice to standing water in and around their properties. Standing water becomes a direct breeding ground for mosquitoes which are known to spread the deadly Eastern Equine Encephalitis and West Nile Viruses. We are asking you to be very cautious and dispose of any free standing water around your house and yard. Water can catch inside of discarded tires, swimming pool covers, swimming pools not in use but collecting rain water, water cans and wheel barrows to name a few. This is considered a nuisance violation with regard to pools and can result in enforcement. Let’s try and keep Randolph free of any potential problems with mosquitoes. You can call Norfolk County Mosquito Control Mon. – Wed. to request a special spraying in your area. 781-762-3681.

Anonymous Bullying Reporting Forms
Students, parents and members of the Randolph community can anonymously report bullying by completing a complaint form at the link, above. There are permanent links to these form on our "For Students," "For Parents," and "For Staff" website tabs, and on each school site. Reports will be forwarded to the Randolph Public Schools District Equity Officer and to the appropriate principal for investigation. Though reports may be made anonymously, the more information the administration receives in a report, the more helpful that report is. There is room on this reporting form for a reporter to include his or her name and contact information, and it is helpful to receive reports that include this information. RPS will fully investigate all reports, anonymous or otherwise, and will notify parents of both the target and the aggressor, as required by law. However, no disciplinary action will be taken against an alleged aggressor solely on the basis of an anonymous report.
Important information for families on Before and After School Program Changes
Dear families, as you may know the Randolph School Committee approved a recommendation to select Springboard Education In America as the extended care provider for Randolph Public Schools. The School Committee and Superintendent Santos are committed to ensuring that all existing families are served by this program if they choose, and that it is a smooth transition. We recognize the importantance of providing information early and hope that you will find the information we are providing helpful. Click the above link for more info. You may contact Monica Roberts for more information, firstname.lastname@example.org or 781-961-6200 ext. 240.
