Your child will be participating in the PARCC (Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers), which will be given to all students in Arkansas in grades 3-11. This Assessment will be administered on a computer. There will be two segments given. The first is the Performance Based Assessment given in March. The second is the End of Year Assessment given in May. The schedule for the Performance Based Assessment for the Ashdown School District is as follows:
Grades 3-5 will test March 9-13
Grades 9-11 will test March 16-20
Grades 6-8 will test March 30-April 2
We have been working here at school to familiarize our students with the new testing format. If you would like to help with this at home, you can access the PARCC website to view sample test items at: http://parcc.pearson.com. There will be a link for Test Preparation, and you will find sample items, tutorials, and practice tests. Please contact your child’s school if you have any questions regarding this new state assessment. Thank you for your support as we work to make your child’s educational experience the best it can be.
Ashdown School District Staff
Ashdown Schools has completed the installation of security access controls to all of the front entrances of its six student-housed campuses. This includes Margaret Daniel Primary School, C. D. Franks Elementary School, L. F. Henderson Intermediate School, Ashdown Junior High School, Ashdown New Tradition School, and Ashdown High School.
"When I was hired as Superintendent of Ashdown Schools," states Jason Sanders, "school security was one of the first areas that our school board stressed upon me." Since those discussions, the school has purchased and installed magnetic locking systems, which gives the district security team the ability to control access to the main entrances of all campuses at all times.
"We feel that we have a safe school environment," continues Superintendent Sanders, "but this system just allows us to improve upon that."
To enter a school building in the Ashdown district, visitors will have to push a button located outside the front entrance of the main building of the campus and wait for a receptionist, who can view the visitor on a camera, to release the lock for entry.
"We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause," says Sanders, "but it is for the safety of our students."
The campus electronic access system was purchased and installed by KLC Video Security of Texarkana, Texas, a certified integrator of Video Insights IP Surveillance Systems.
