Standardized Testing Calendar for This School Year

This spring, the PARCC assessment will replace the NJ ASK and the HSPA tests, as required by law.

All students in grades 3-8 and high school students taking certain courses will now be tested using the PARCC assessment this spring.

The Jackson School District has established a schedule in order to complete all of the required testing during the windows of time established by the state. 

Please select the letter for the grade level/school for your child to view that unique testing schedule. These dates are also listed on the calendar on the district and school websites.

we didn’t have to worry about all this other stuff.’’

Do you find yourself saying

Are you sometimes afraid to open that backpack to see what kind of “homework monster’’ lives in there?

Dear Holman Families:



It’s hard to believe that football season will end this Sunday as the Patriots and Seahawks compete to see who the champion is.  Even if you’re not a New England or Seattle fan, many of us will celebrate with friends and family and enjoy the commercials shown throughout the game.  We are also celebrating Holman’s annual “Souper Bowl” our canned food drive that will benefit the Jackson Food Pantry.  Please help us tackle hunger by sending in canned goods labeled with your child’s homeroom.  The food drive will continue through Wednesday, February 4th. As we enter a new marking period, please be sure to log into your Portal account to make sure that you are ready to access your child’s second marking period report card.  Report cards will be available on the Portal on February 11th.

Come and see our
Fifth Grade Chorus Concert, under the direction of Mr. Mark Grayce, it will now be held on Wednesday, February 4th.  Please join us at Jackson Liberty High School; the performance begins promptly at 7:00 PM.  (Fifth grade students are to arrive at 6:30 PM) Enjoy the show!   As a special treat, Jackson Television (JTV) will be selling DVDs of each of our elementary concerts. Capture moments, cherish memories, and relive the joy!  A DVD of our Concert Event will be available for purchase at a cost of $15.00 per DVD.    Support your school and enjoy this memento at the same time!
