General Information about PARCC Assessments
New Jersey is a member of the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) consortium, therefore all NJ public schools, including Warren Hills Regional schools, will be administering the PARCC Assessments to students in Grades 7-11. PARCC testing in the high school will begin Monday, April 16, 2018 and run through April 23, 2018. PARCC testing in the middle school will begin Wednesday, April 25, 2018 and run through Wednesday, May 2, 2018. The PARCC Assessments test students' mastery of the New Jersey Student Learning Standards for English Language Arts, Mathematics, and English Language Arts for History/Social Science and Technical Subjects. New Jersey adopted the New Jersey Student Learning Standards in 2016, and they were fully implemented across our curriculum by September 1, 2017 as per state law.
It is the expectation of the Board of Education, Administration, and Faculty of the Warren Hills Regional School District that students in Grades 7-11 will take the PARCC Assessments for their grade level.
Please see this letter from the Superintendent of Schools about the upcoming PARCC assessment.

Information for the Classes of 2018 and 2019
New Jersey is in the process of phasing in the PARCC Assessments as a requirement for students to earn a high school diploma, and this phase in period affects students in the Classes of 2018 and 2019. During this phase in period the NJDOE has identified passing scores on the PARCC Assessments for the purposes of earning a high school diploma. Passing the PARCC Assessments is the most direct pathway to satisfying the NJDOE requirements to earn a high school diploma. Taking the PARCC Assessments each year prepares the students to find success on the high school PARCC Assessments.
The NJDOE has also identified passing scores on alternate standardized exams for the purposes of earning a high school diploma for those students unable to achieve the minimum passing score on the PARCC Assessments.
Please see this presentation from the NJDOE for the latest information on the PARCC Assessments and the testing requirement for a high school diploma.
Students unable to meet the minimum passing scores on PARCC Assessments or the alternate assessments will need to complete the NJDOE Portfolio Appeal. When the NJDOE releases information on the Portfolio Appeal Process it will be updated on the menu to the left.
