All members of the Lindenwold staff are collectively responsible for developing, delivering, and monitoring a first-class system of curriculum, assessment, and instruction. We believe that all teaching and learning must rest on a well-developed, standards-aligned curriculum foundation that provides our answer to the question, "What should students learn?" We use our system of district, school, and classroom assessments to monitor student progress towards learning targets, and work continually to improve our ability to use instructional best practices to make sure students learn the curriculum, and respond appropriately when they struggle. 

Under the NJDOE ESSA plan, two of our schools were identified as in need of comprehensive or targeted support. The presentation below provides further context and explanation. Please contact your school principal or Dr. Mancinelli with questions.
BOE Seminar 2018-19

In 2014, students in New Jersey for the first time took the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) assessment. These online tests are designed to replace the New Jersey Assessment of Skills and Knowledge (NJ ASK) and the High School Proficiency Assessment (HSPA), and match the content and skills outlined in the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). These new tests moved away from fill-in-the bubble tests and asked questions that require students to explain their answers more fully. The results from PARCC, along with your child’s educational learning experience, including performance in the classroom, provide an overall picture of his or her academic success and progress towards graduating high school ready to succeed in college-level work and/or career entry expectations.

Below is a presentation given to the Lindenwold BOE in September of 2018 outlining our district's performance on PARCC from 2016 to 2018. More information regarding the PARCC has been mailed along with individual student reports. 

As required by state legislation, Lindenwold students in Grades 3-11 take the PARCC in English Language Arts (ELA) and math each year during the months of March, April, or May over approximately 1-3 days.  Each day testing will last approximately three hours.  Students with accommodations outlined in an IEP or with accessibility needs outlined in a 504 will have their needs met accordingly.  More information for parents on the PARCC, including sample items, can be found here:
