Why Everyone Needs to Relax About PARCC Testing - Governor Tom Kean explains in an op-ed why he thinks PARCC continues New Jersey's tradition of excellence in schools and represents the next logical step in maintaining our role as a national leader in education.

Focus on Continued Student Gains - In a guest editorial by Vivian Cox Fraser, president and CEO of the Urban League of Essex County, and Reginald Lewis, the executive director of the Chad School Foundation, they explain how PARCC will help us determine whether our students are improving critical thinking, problem-solving, and higher-order thinking - all essential skills for succeeding in college, a future career and life. 

PARCC & Alternative Graduation Requirements

Beginning with the class of 2016, students must demonstrate proficiency in the areas of mathematics and English Language Arts in order to graduate from a New Jersey public high school.  Currently, the PARCC assessment is the tool through which proficiency will be demonstrated.  However, the NJDOE has created a variety of other means to demonstrate proficiency in the event that a student does not earn a passing score on the PARCC.
