Red River United is At the Table! Princess Hill and Nikki Doughty represent RRU at PARCC. 

The American Federation of Teachers, in conjunction with Red River President Jackie Lansdale and Caddo Parish School Board Chief Academic Officer Keith Burton, have nominated Princess Hill (Summer Grove Elementary) and Nikki Doughty (Keithville Elementary) for a rare opportunity to work with the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC).

This opportunity will allow access for Princess and Nikki to the work of the assessment consortia developing Common Core-aligned assessments. Finally educators are at the table! We believe this work will be a tremendous benefit to our union and to all of our local educators in Caddo and Bossier Parishes. The project is being supported by a grant from the Helmsley Charitable Trust, a New York City-based foundation, to PARCC to work with members of both the AFT and the NEA.

PARCC Project Information: Recruiting a total of 36 teachers for the project-18 English Language Arts and 18 mathematics teachers (NATION WIDE).
