Dear HTS Community,
Beginning on Monday, March 2, students at HTS will join their peers in 12 states in taking a new standardized assessment – the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC). This online assessment will be administered in our computer labs in March and again in April/May. The Vision Council will be hosting our third quarter meeting on Wednesday, February 11 at 7:00pm in the library/media center to discuss this in greater detail. This meeting – PARCC for Parents – will offer parents a longitudinal look at the history of standardized assessments in New Jersey as well as a side by side comparison of the PARCC and NJASK. Moreover, parents will leave with a better understanding of how they can assist their children on this exam. We hope to see you there.
Lastly, I would like to remind the entire HTS community about the Second Annual State of the Schools Address on Monday, February 23 at 7:30pm in the library/media center.
