  • Letter from the Superintendent - District Testing Update

    January 25, 2019 - Dear Parents, Guardians and Students: The end of January usually marks a time when we receive a flood of correspondence from parents regarding their desire to not have their children participate in the New Jersey Department of Education standardized testing program. With the 2015 transition to a computer-based testing program (PARCC) and the resulting skepticism over the use and sharing of student data, the widespread unpopularity of the Common Core State Standards and other state-mandated reforms, and a host of other problems too numerous to list, parents and students had many reasons to be concerned.

    The Wayne Township Public Schools are one of 373 school districts in the U.S. and Canada being honored by the College Board with placement on the 9th Annual AP District Honor Roll.
