2017 Teen Arts Expo
As you are aware, the District will be beginning PARCC testing. The New Jersey Department of Education has issued mandates to the schools during the testing period. The State prohibits any unauthorized electronic device to be in the room where the testing is taking place, or even in the testing areas around the school.
Electronic devices include, but are not limited to: cell phone, tablet, Smartwatch, laptop, etc. These items will not be allowed in the classrooms and the hallways where testing is occurring. The District is strongly suggesting that parents do not permit their child to bring a cell phone/electronic devices to school during testing days or it will be collected. Students involved with testing, who do bring a cell phone/electronic device must give the device to the building principal prior to entering the testing area. The devices will be taken to a secured location within the school outside of the testing environment as designated by the Building Administration.
Prior to testing each day, High School and Middle School students, testing that day, will be asked to sign a document certifying that they do not have any unauthorized electronic devices in their possession. It is the responsibility of you, as the parents of our Elementary School students, to advise your child that electronic devices are not allowed in school during the test. If unauthorized electronic devices are noted as being in the possession of students taking the test when in the testing area or in an area adjacent to the testing area the student’s test may be voided, you will be notified by the District and your child may be disciplined consistent with District Policy 5600.If you have any questions, feel free to contact your building principal.
The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC)
Each spring, students throughout New Jersey participate in the PARCC 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.
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. By participating
in the PARCC assessment, we will gain additional information regarding your child's strengths and how we can enhance them. In addition,
it will provide us with information regarding areas where your child may need more support so that we can adequately address his/her
individual needs. We thank you for your support as we continue our efforts to provide high quality curricula, aligned to the Student
Learning Standards, to facilitate our students’ success.
