SIATech Little Rock Teacher Chosen from 900 Applicants to Represent Arkansas Wendy Bryant, Special Programming Director for Little Rock SIATech, was chosen to participate in the grade 10 English Language Arts/Literacy Performance Level Setting Meeting, taking place this summer in Denver, Colorado. The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) received over 900 applications from educators in PARCC member states and was chosen based on her work with a variety of students as well as her background in various educational settings. Educators from all of PARCC’s member states will spend the week analyzing state testing standards and identifying areas of testing needs. The team will also be able to present their findings to PARCC in an effort to have testing standards which represent the variety of students served.

Bryant is honored to have been selected and is excited to represent the state of Arkansas.
