Dear Students, Parents, Colleagues, Alumni and Friends:  

A discussion about state testing will be held on Wednesday, June 27, 2018, from 2 -4 pm in the Woodstown Middle School All Purpose Room. Woodstown Middle School is located behind the iconic Woodstown High School at Lincoln Ave, Woodstown, NJ 08098. This is a unique, local opportunity to hold a discussion with representatives from the Department of Education. 

The New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) is seeking input from superintendents, teachers, test administrators, parents/caregivers, students and other stakeholders about how to best transition to the next generation of state-wide assessments.

Stakeholder input will play an integral role in the NJDOE’s short and long-term plans for, and improvements to, the state-wide assessment program. The NJDOE is particularly interested in perspectives on the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC), which is the current state-wide assessment in math and English language arts/literacy. Public input is needed to determine what elements of the state-wide assessment program work well, and what areas need improvement.

All feedback will be recorded, responded to, and included in our planning for the future of assessment in New Jersey.

Following these conversations the NJDOE will present a plan to transition to New Jersey’s next generation of standardized state-wide assessments. In the meantime, the current state-wide assessments, as well as federal and state accountability and graduation requirements, all remain in effect until changes to the regulations are announced.  Please join us:  Wednesday, June 27, 2018, from 2 -4 pm in the Woodstown Middle School All Purpose Room.
