PARCC Transition

Friends of Choice in Urban Schools (FOCUS) is now the DC Charter School Alliance!

Please visit to learn about our new organization and to see the latest news and information related to DC charter schools.

The FOCUS DC website is online to see historic information, but is not actively updated.

In partnership with FOCUS, DC education consultant Josh Boots (Empower K12) has used NWEA MAP data to link DC CAS proficiency levels with future PARCC scores. 

Click here for more information about the data tool, available to all charter schools, that can help schools translate spring MAP data into PARCC projections, and/or translate 2014 DC CAS data into PARCC equivalents.
