A group of concerned Seth Boyden PTA members has formed a committee to address issues with the 2018 PARCC results. The scores for Seth Boyden’s opt-in students were assigned to their zoned school, and not to Seth Boyden, which could have implications for our students, teachers, school achievement rates, and more.

The newly formed PARCC Score Errors Special Committee has submitted this letter to Dr. Thomas Ficarra, the interim superintendent of schools.

If you share this committee’s concerns, we encourage you to attend the Board of Education meeting at 7:30pm on Monday night at 525 Academy Street in Maplewood.
