    Letter from Dr. Bowie about PARCC Assessments

    Students at Dwight Morrow High School will be participating in state standardized testing. The New Jersey State law and regulations require all students to take statewide assessments. Thus, it is our district’s responsibility to provide appropriate assessments and follow state mandates that encourage student learning.

    We are mandated to administer the Partnership for the Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) assessment, as it meets the assessment criteria required for students to receive a state approved high school diploma. The PARCC assessment provides information which allows schools and families to gain a better understanding of how well students perform on a range of reading and math skills that all students should master.

    This letter provides specific information on our testing schedule. All students in Grades 9-11 will be taking three performance-based assessments in English/Language Arts (ELA) and students in Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II will participate in three performance-based assessments in Mathematics. Please note that Grade 12 students that are enrolled in math classes that are assessed through PARCC are also required to participate in testing.

    In an effort to maximize learning, we will run a special schedule so that minimal instructional time is missed for those students who are required to take the PARCC assessment. Dwight Morrow High School will test over a six-day period (ELA - April 25, 26, and 27, 2018 and Math – April 30, May 1 and 2, 2018). Testing will run from 8:00 a.m. to approximately 10:00 a.m. on all days. Bus pick up for students who are testing will be at the regularly scheduled pick-up time. Special note for students in Hip Chord which runs during zero period, class will be canceled for April 25th only and will resume as usual on Thursday April 26th.

    Seniors and students who are not required to test on specific days will follow our standard delayed opening bell schedule with students expected to be in school by 10:00a.m. on each day. Please note, all buses will run as regularly scheduled. Therefore, all students that participate in district busing that are not required to test will need to report to the auditorium in the morning. Note: There will be no delayed opening buses for any days so any student that chooses to come in delayed will be responsible for their own transportation.

    Thank you for working with us to maximize the opportunity for your child to perform at the best of their ability. In that regard, remind your child to go to bed at a reasonable time and please encourage them to eat breakfast. To support this effort, free breakfast will be available before school starts at 8:00 a.m., for all students that are participating in testing. We are committed to your children, know that our teachers work diligently to construct assessments that prepare students to think critically. We thank you again for your support and please don’t hesitate to contact a counselor or the administration if you have any questions or concerns.
