On June 5th PARCC hosted its first town hall meeting using the #askPARCC hashtag to organize the conversation.  The event was hosted by the Rhode Island Education Commissioner, PARCC Governing Board member, and prolific tweeter Deborah A. Gist (@deborahgist).  This is the first in a series that will stretch throughout the summer and provide an open venue for everyone to ask questions about next generation assessment-students, families, teachers, principals, interested citizens, etc.    The entire conversation can be found here-#askPARCC Twitter Town Hall 6.5.13
