New Jersey Educator Leader Cadre

The PARCC Educator Leader Cadres (ELCs) help each state build and expand the number of educators who understand, support and feel ownership of the successful implementation of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) assessments.

While individual states organize a range of activities for their K-12 communities, each year the PARCC organization will gather teams of K-16 educators from across PARCC states to help increase their expertise on the CCSS and PARCC assessment.  These meetings, both virtual and in-person, are opportunities for educators to build expertise in the CCSS and PARCC by engaging in deep analysis of the CCSS and aligned materials such as the PARCC Model Content Frameworks, sample items, assessment blueprints and more. The expertise and leadership of the state teams will facilitate continued support for colleagues at home.
