The primary purpose of this report card is to increase accountability for educational progress and communicate this information to the public. Included in this report card is a narrative from the Carlstadt Public School Principal detailing information based upon the 2015-2016 school year. Students in grades 3 through 8 were administered the PARCC Test during the spring of 2016. The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) is a group of states working together to develop a set of assessments that measure whether students are on track to be successful in college and their careers. These high quality K–12 assessments in Mathematics and English Language Arts/Literacy give teachers, schools, students, and parents better information whether students are on track in their learning and for success after high school, and tools to help teachers customize learning to meet student needs. Students in grades 4 and 8 were also administered the NJASK in the science area. It should be noted however, that the populations change from one year to the next at various grade levels so exact tracking information is not always possible. The Elementary and Secondary Education Act was our country’s most important education law. Eleven years ago this law was revised and was called the No Child Left Behind Act. No Child Left Behind (NCLB) was designed to make changes in teaching and learning that would help our students achieve more in school. In December 2015, the ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) was passed and takes full effect during the 2017-2018 school year.
Ultimately, the intention of the Every Student Succeeds Act Federal Legislation is to meet the needs of all children.
Most importantly, we encourage you to become involved in our school. Communication between the home and school is essential in order to meet the needs of our students academically, socially, emotionally and physically.
