"Students don't care how much we know until they know how much we care"
Kennedy students will be taking the PARCC assessments the week of April 11.
Overall Kennedy students performed very well on these assessments last year, outperforming national, state, and district averages in almost all areas. Unfortunately, because so many students did not take the test, we did not get a true picture of how well our students and teachers are doing. Had all of our students taken the test, I feel that our results would have been even better.
In order to allow us to focus the picture even more I am appealing to all parents to please allow their children to take the PARCC assessment this year. Please watch this video and contact me if you have any questions or concerns about the test and how it fits in to the current landscape of education in New Jersey.
