Greetings Carusi Middle School Community,
As we prepare for the New Jersey Student Learning Assessments (NJSLA) which have replaced PARCC assessments please read the two attached letters from the district. These two letters have also been sent home with Carusi students today, March 25, 2019 and can also be found on our website. Click here to view the district letters sent home on March 25, 2019.
More information about the state assessments can be located here: https://www.nj.gov/education/assessment.
Our school district's assessment schedule and information can be located here: https://www.chclc.org/academics/assessment.
The administration of NJSLA to middle school students begins on May 7, 2019. The schedule has been made to have the least impact on our schedule. We encourage 100% participation in these valuable assessments that allow us to identify needs and celebrate successes for our students. These results also provide valuable data to add to our ongoing review of instructional practices to best serve all our students in reaching or exceeding standards while targeting the elimination of any demographic achievement gaps.
Thank you for supporting our efforts to have students present and on-time to minimize interruptions of instruction all year long and even more importantly during the administration of the state assessments.
If you have any questions or concerns, don't hesitate to reach out to me.
Dr. John J. Cafagna
Principal of Carusi Middle School
