Communities across New Jersey are asking their local school boards to take a stand against the NJDOE’s pursuit of making PARCC a high school graduation requirement by passing this resolution. Already 10 districts have passed resolutions to protect their students from the hasty actions of the New Jersey Department of Education. Could your district be next?
Here is a resolution that you can adapt for your district. This resolution, which has been adopted by 14 school districts across New Jersey, was developed by Darci Cimarusti, president of the Highland Park Board of Education. You can share it with your local Board members and ask them to consider voting on it. You can speak to it at a local BOE meeting. You can gather parents, community members and educators to join in support of having it passed.
You can make a difference! Together we can stop the NJ DOE from forcing PARCC on our students as a high school graduation requirement.
