MCAS Resources for Parents/Guardians

General Information

Information for Parents of High School Students

Understanding MCAS Test Results

If you have questions on these resources, or wish to obtain a copy of your child's results in large print, Braille, or other accommodated format, please contact the Office of Student Assessment by email or phone at 781-338-3625.

MCAS-Related Scholarships

Students who qualify for these scholarships will be notified by a letter, which will be sent to parents/guardians from your child's high school on behalf of the Department. This letter is important, because a copy must be submitted with the completed FAFSA application each year. Without this letter, the college/university will not apply the tuition credit. If you have questions or cannot locate your child's letter, please contact the high school.

Thank you for your interest, and for all you do to support your child's education.
