Sample Parent Letter & Student Performance Data Release Webinar

Dear Superintendents,

Please find attached a draft letter to parents highlighting the three data releases that will be occurring over the next several months. Feel free to use the letter as is or to modify it to meet the information needs of your local district. The letter also can be sent directly from you to parents or again be modified to come from your principals to parents.

Also attached is the 2014 READY Accountability Background Brief that we provide to local media each year to help bring them up-to-speed regarding any changes to the state's accountability program, release dates and resources for additional information or assistance.

We have scheduled a webinar for local media for today, Aug. 27, at 10:30 a.m. The webinar will echo the discussion we had with you and your accountability directors earlier this month. However, if you would like to participate or have some of your staff participate, you may register at Accountability Services Director Tammy Howard will be addressing the Sept. 4 data release, K-3 Literacy Director Carolyn Guthrie will be discussing the Oct. 2 Read to Achieve release, and NC School Report Coordinator Diane Dulaney will focus on the Feb. 5, 2015 NC School Report Cards release.
