NMPARCC Reading-Writing Begins on March 4

Starting in the 2014–2015 school year, New Mexico's current reading, writing, and mathematics components of the Standards Based Assessment (SBA) will be replaced with the New Mexico Partnership for the Assessment of Readiness of College and Careers (NMPARCC) assessments developed to measure the full extent to which students are demonstrating mastery of the New Mexico Common Core State Standards (NMCCSS). Students in grades 3-High School will take the NMPARCC Assessments.

PARCC PBA Schedule


Should you have any questions, please contact your child's teacher or testing coordinator via email at kdelcurto@abqse.org

PARCC Testing

Dear Parents

In the spring of 2015 our students will be taking a new assessment test in grades 3-11. We will be testing PARCC PBA (Performance Based Assessments) now in March as well as the SBA. On April 13- May 8 we will be testing PARCC EOY (end of year). The test known as PARCC, stands for Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers and is based on assessing a student’s knowledge and understanding of the Common Core State Standards.

As we begin to prepare our students for these new exams, We wanted to provide you with information that will help explain more about both the Common Core Standards and the PARCC initiative. We have included some helpful links to websites you may wish to visit. The first site provides a short 3 minute video explaining why a large number of States have officially adopted the Common Core Standards. The second and third provides more details regarding the Common Core and the fourth is the official site for parental information concerning the PARCC.

We encourage you to visit these sites and help partner with us as we adjust to these new testing protocols. Please see schedule on the back of this letter for the upcoming PARCC assessment testing.

For this policy “sibling” shall mean a biological or legally adopted brother or sister residing in the same household as the applicant. Cousins, nieces, nephews and unrelated children sharing an address with the applicant are not siblings. Sibling enrollment is dependent on available space and does not guarantee enrollment of each listed sibling.

Sibling Policy

Siblings of returning students currently enrolled at ASE and who timely notify the school of their intent to return for the next school year are exempt from the lottery and, space permitting, are automatically enrolled. These children are granted Sibling Preference in accordance with New Mexico law. The intent of the law is to keep families together. Once a child attends their first day at ASE, the siblings of that child become eligible for Sibling Preference.

Sibling by definition is a:
A. Biological/adoptive sibling
B. Stepsibling residing in the same household. Stepsiblings living in different households are not considered for a sibling preference
C. Foster children residing within the same household. Foster Parents must provide documentation showing they have legal guardianship.

A twelfth-grade student or alumnus of the school with a sibling applying for the following year does not qualify the sibling for sibling preference.

Timely Notifying the School: Siblings have to apply before March 13th. If they apply after March 14th then they will be considered as a new applicant and be placed according to l3ttery result and will not be given any priority for enrollment. Make sure you check the sibling option when you apply.
