The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC)
During the spring of 2016, students throughout New Jersey will 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. PARCC has replaced 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.

their careers. We will continue our efforts to provide high quality curricula, aligned to the Common
Core State Standards, to facilitate our students’ success.
