Dear Parents and Guardians,

Public school districts in New Jersey are required to provide parents/guardians information on the planned administration of state assessments and standardized commercially-developed assessments at the beginning of each school year.  Attached you will find a schedule addressing the assessments that will be given throughout the 2022-2023 school year.

Please do not hesitate to contact me via email at [email protected] with any questions.

Sincerely,
