PARCC Participation Corrective Action Plan

The government requires that in any districts receiving federal funds for Title I have at least 95% of their students participating in state testing. This 95% requirement applies to each subgroup within each school.  Thus, at each school, the participation rate is considered for each separate group including minorities, students with special needs, students at different economic levels, students of different genders, and so on.  Failure to meet the requirement for any one of these subgroups could disqualify the district from receiving those federal funds.

For the first PARCC administration, in the 2014-2015 school year, the district failed for the first time ever to meet the federal participation requirement.  As a result, Lumberton was expected to design a corrective action plan in order to increase the percentage of students taking the PARCC test in 2016.  You can use the link below to view the plan that was submitted to the county.

We are pleased to share that the participation rate did increase for the spring, 2016 administration of PARCC tests.  However, there remain some subgroups who did not meet the required level of 95%.
