The next Board of Education meeting is scheduled for May 12, 2016 in the Board of Education Conference Room.
For the past two days, district administrators have been in contact with New Jersey Department of Education officials about yesterday’s interruption in PARCC testing. We are pleased to announce that we have obtained a two-day extension to our PARCC testing window. We are also happy to share that we will not be testing on Thursday, April 28: Take Your Child To Work Day.
The revised PARCC schedule is as follows:
Grades 3 & 4: Will test April 29-May 9
Grade 5: Resumed today and will finish on April 26
Grade 7: Resumed today and will finish on April 25
We know the issues with the PARCC testing website created inconveniences for many people – most especially for our students and staff – and we appreciate your patience as we worked to find a solution.
