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.

Among the complaints; too much classroom time was spent preparing for the computer-based test, and that the test itself was confusing to students.
