Cathy and everyone else,

The reason you might be confused about PARCC is that there are TWO components to PARCC and people aren't differenciating them. NYS (according to what John Svensen said at AMTNYS) is most likely adopting the PARCC FRAMEWORKS - which is the course curriculum for all three courses. And yes - Geometry is definitely being implemented in 2013-14 (like Algebra)

The second part of PARCC is the testing portion - and NYS has made NO determination about this so far.

So, in conclusion, when people refer to PARCC they should be adding the term "framework" or "testing" after it in order to be clear about what they are talking about. And secondly - I highly recommend going to the PARCC website looking at the framework for what is most likely the curriculum for the courses if you are doing any work on curriculum for next year.

Core Curriculum: [HS is on pages 57-87]

I hope this helps

I have also heard that they are not definitely
based on the PARCC assessments. Has anyone heard otherwise?

My concern is that I still don't know
exactly what topics are covered when..... I asked this earlier through
this forum and I was referred to the PARCC information, but now I believe
that NYS hasn't decided to use PARCC.

I am soooooo confused.

You are correct Evan, the
Algebra and Geometry exams both change next year (13-14). I haven?t heard
anything about the names of them.

Importance: Low

Two questions:

(1) When CCLS is implemented in the HS, starting next year, do we know
if the names of the Regents Exams will change to match the CCLS course
names (Alg I, Geom, Alg II) or will NYS continue to call the exams Int
Alg, Geom and A2T? I assume the names will change, but has SED decided
that yet? (We're trying to decide on our math course names for next year.)

(2) I should know this, but I'm confused: when does Geometry become a CCLS
course? I know 9th grade math becomes CC next year (2013-14), and I know
11th grade math becomes CC in 2014-2015. But is Geometry CC in 2013-14
or in 2014-15? I thought it was 2014-15, but this document seems to say
it's 2013-14:

(see page 3)

I says "seems because it's hard to read across the table horizontally.
