PARCC Schedule Released
March 10th, 2017
March 9, 2017
As you are aware, all public schools in New Jersey will once again, administer the NJDOE mandated PARCC this spring. PARCC, for high school students, will begin in March. RFH has invested a great deal of time developing a schedule that will minimize the impact on instructional time. Additionally, you may recall that RFH has eliminated third marking period EMPAs (formerly known as quarterlies) in order to lessen the testing demands on our students this spring.
Students will be tested in the following courses:
The PARCC testing will take place during regularly scheduled English and Mathematics classes over two period blocks. English testing will begin on Monday, March 27 for three consecutive days. Mathematics testing will begin on Friday, March 31 for three consecutive days. Students will be excused from missed classwork during their PARCC testing periods. Any student who will be testing during their regularly scheduled lunch period will be notified and released from class either before or after testing to accommodate their lunch.
Please see the link below for specific schedule details. As indicated by the schedule, non-tested courses will continue to meet throughout this testing period. Please note that the room assignments are not included on this schedule; they will be communicated directly to your students.
Should you have any questions regarding the PARCC or our schedule, please contact Mr. Christopher Alworth, Supervisor of Technology at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your continued support and cooperation.
