In October 2021, the district sent out a letter sharing information about the various standardized tests administered in the district for the 2020-2021 school year. The NJSLA (New Jersey Student Learning Assessment) was listed on that communication.
The United States Department of Education recently informed the New Jersey Department of Education that the administration of the new Start Strong assessments in fall 2021 will satisfy the federal statewide assessment requirement for the 2020-2021 school year.
Therefore, there will be no spring 2021 administration of the New Jersey Student Learning Assessments (NJSLA).
The Start Strong assessments will be administered in fall 2021 to all students in English Language Arts (ELA) grades 4-10, Mathematics grades 4-8, Algebra I, Geometry and Algebra II, and in Science grades 6, 9, and 12. These assessments will be administered in person and while in school from September 13, 2021 through October 22, 2021.
Information about the Start Strong Assessment Fall 2021 administration will be shared with our community once it is made available.
