BERNARDS TOWNSHIP, NJ - For the past year, the Bernards Township Board of Education has been rotating some of its meetings to the different schools within the township, and this Monday's meeting is set to "showcase" the Cedar Hill Elemntary School.
The meeting is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. on Monday, June 8, at the school at 100 Peachtree Road, near the Board of Education administration building.
During the meeting, School Principal Joseph Mollica is scheduled to discuss "Where Learning is Bringing Quality to Young Lives," according to the agenda printed online.
The agenda also includes a resolution through the board's Advocay Committee to be adopted in regard to the PARCC assessment testing adopted statewide in New Jersey this year. The test debuted for students in grades 3 to 11 this March.
Many parents within the Bernards School district - as in other school systems throughout the state, were highly critical of the PARCC (Partnership for Assessment of Readiness and College Career) tests. Among the complaints; too much classroom time was spent preparing for the computer-based test, and that the test itself was confusing to students.
