Parents, Please Note: The New Jersey Department of Education has established strict guidelines regarding electronic devices in any room where the PARCC Test is being administered. If a device is brought into the testing room, students are required to turn them off and turn them into teachers prior to the start of the test. They will be held until testing has concluded.
This mandate applies to all electronic devices, including cell phones, smart watches, and digital readers. If a student is found to have a device after testing has begun, we are obligated to contact the Department of Education and an investigation of testing irregularity will be undertaken.
Please share the severity of these new mandates with your child prior to administration of PARCC Testing.
Our students have been familiarized with the use of the computer and the necessary functions required while testing. Each student will have to use headphones, which we are asking that they bring from home for health reasons. Any set of ear buds (must be double, not single) or headphones will suffice. They should be brought in a plastic bag and labeled with their name to leave in school for the testing period.The following resources are provided to help parents better understand the PARCC assessment and its impact upon students.
