District Announcements
PARCC Letter from the Superintendent
August 19, 2016
 
 
Dear Parent/Guardian:
 
In the spring, your child participated in the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) tests to measure his or her academic progress with the New Jersey Student Learning Standards. Evaluating the results from PARCC testing can be a helpful tool in measuring your child’s success in school, and it is just one of the many ways your child’s teachers and administrators can determine whether he or she is on track to being college and career-ready. New Jersey has had statewide tests for decades, and they have served as a small, but important part of assessing our students’ annual progress.  Click here for a continuation of the Superintendent's letter with links for the English Language Arts and Math parent guides for the score reports.

Preparation for the 2016-2017 school year has begun, and the new student forms are available on the district and school websites.  Please review the cover letter for instructions under Parents > Parent Information and Forms > Student Back to School/Enrollment Forms.
