Student testing on paper

IAR Replaces PARCC

The Illinois Assessment of Readiness (IAR) will replace the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) test as the federally required assessment administered to all third through eighth grade students this spring. Please read this letter to learn more about the IAR. Students will begin taking these assessments starting Wednesday, April 3 at Aspen. Results will be shared with parents once our 2019-2020 year begins. You can support your student(s) by making sure they have had a good, healthy breakfast each morning and have had plenty of rest the night before.
