Dear Parent/Guardian:
In the spring of 2015, the New Jersey Department of Education will begin to administer the PARCC assessment to students in grades three through eleven.  The PARCC assessment is an electronic assessment designed to measure student proficiency in Language Arts and Mathematics, as defined by the Common Core Standards.  This two-part computer assessment will replace the NJASK Mathematics and the NJASK Language Arts in grades three through eight. It will also replace the HPSA Mathematics and HSPA Language Arts in grade eleven.  The NJASK Science in grades four and eight, as well as the NJ Biology Competency test at the high school level, will continue throughout the 2014-2015 school year. 
The first part of the computer based assessment, the Performance Based portion, will be administered to Fort Lee students between March 2nd & March 27th.  The second part of the assessment, the End of Year portion, will be administered between April 27th & May 22nd for students in grade three through eight, and between April 20th & May 15th for students in grade nine through eleven.  In both the Performance Based and End of Year PARCC assessment, the Language Arts section consists of three assessments, and the Mathematics portion consists of two assessments.  Specific dates and times for each grade level within these date ranges will be provided once each school finalizes their schedule.  Our Administrative Team will also be hosting PARCC Parent Nights in the end of January.  Please check our website for updated information.
