NJSLA Testing Schedule and Pertinent Information

This year NJSLA testing will take place over 4 days for Grades 7-10. Students who will be testing will arrive at school at regular time for the assessments. Students who are not required to participate in mandatory state testing (generally Grades 11-12) will arrive to school on the 2 Hour Delay Schedule. If students in Grades 11-12 need to utilize bus transportation on these days, they may continue to do so but will arrive to school at regular time. Buses will only run at their regular scheduled operating time. We will communicate this to our student body as testing approaches. Please contact your child's counselor should you have any questions on their required state testing.
