"Our Mission: Maximizing all students' potential for success in an ever-changing world."
The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC)
Beginning in the spring of 2015, students throughout New Jersey will participate in a new assessment. The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) is a computer-based assessment in English Language Arts and Mathematics skills for students in grades 3-11. PARCC will be replacing the NJASK/HSPA for these grade levels.
To assist you in understanding this assessment, the West New York School District has compiled a
“Frequently Asked Questions” sheet, accessible via this link.

Some key points to consider:
Since the state requires that districts have at least 95 percent of students participating in the test,
(districts could potentially lose state or federal funding if they do not meet that rate), the district is
obligated to administer the exam to all eligible students.
Our District is committed to ensuring that our students are prepared to be successful in college and their
careers. We will continue our efforts to provide high quality curricula, aligned to the Common Core State
Standards, to facilitate our students’ success.
