2020-2021 Annual Assessment Information - Letter from the Superintendent

September 30, 2020

Dear Parents and Guardians:

Pursuant to N.J.S.A. 18A:7C-6.6, school districts are required each year by October 1 to provide notification to parents and guardians regarding information on any state assessment or commercially developed standardized assessment that will be administered in the school district during the current school year.  

Specifically, we are required to share the following: 

A. The subject area of the assessment and grade levels covered by the assessment;

B.The date or range of potential dates for the administration of the assessment;

C. The time allotted for the student to take and complete the assessment;

D. Any accommodations or accessibility options available to students;

E. Information on how and when the student and his/her parent or guardian can access both sample questions and answers to the assessment and the student's results; and

F. Whether the assessment is required by the State or federal government, or both.

In response to this requirement, the WTPS has developed a table to aid parents with understanding the district assessment program. Please find attached a table which provides parents and guardians with all required standardized testing information. Please note that the district offers a full range of testing accommodations as required by law.

Based on the ongoing guidance from the New Jersey Department of Education, the timing of many of these assessments is still to be determined due to the ongoing impact of COVID-19.  We will provide you with an update when more information is available.   

Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at (973) 633-3032.

Sincerely,

Mark Toback, Ed.D.

Superintendent of Schools
