New Jersey Graduation Proficiency Assessment (NJGPA) - Bring your Charged Chromebook

This morning, we began to administer the New Jersey Graduation Proficiency Assessment (NJGPA) in English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics. The assessments for English language arts (ELA) and Mathematics will be administered to students in grade 11 for the purpose of meeting the state graduation assessment requirement. The state-mandated NJGPA will be administered in our district from March 14 through March 17, 2022 with make-up dates from March 21 through March 24, 2022.

Please be sure that your student brings their fully charged Chrome Book to school in order to take the assessment. We do not have extra devices to give students who forget to bring or charge their device.

Thank you for your assistance with this!
