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 2020-2021 school year.

Please do not hesitate to contact me via email at rlella@nhanover.com with any questions.

Sincerely, Lella Signature Dr. Rachel C. Lella Director of Curriculum & Instruction
