Kindergarten Registration for 2018-19
     Kindergarten registration for the 2018-19 school year will be held at the Glen Rock Public Library from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 11 and Friday, Jan. 19, 2018. Children must be five years of age on or before Oct. 1, 2018 in order to register. The school district is emphasizing that for the convenience of all families, no appointments are necessary, and all registrations will be treated equally, with no “first come, first served” preference given.              
     Resident families with children entering grades 1-5 next year who are not currently attending Glen Rock Public Schools are also invited to attend registration following the schedule above.
     Families can access registration packets, including residency and age requirements and health forms via this website. Click on the Parents/Students tab and select Registration Information from the drop-down menu. All necessary documents for proof of residency and birthdate must be presented at the time of registration. School personnel will be on hand to answer questions.
     The steps for Kindergarten placement will follow the same sequence as last year. School assignment for all registrants will be determined through a process that seeks to balance enrollment figures across the four elementary schools, taking into consideration the presence of siblings. Families who complete registration on Jan. 11 or 19 will be notified of their child’s school placement in the spring of 2018. Families who register after those dates will receive their child’s school placement in late August.
      A future announcement will be made regarding time and place of parent orientation and student “Round-Up" at all elementary schools.

 
Standardized Assessment Schedules
Pursuant to N.J.S.A. 18A:7C-6.6, school districts and charter schools must, by October 1 of each year, provide parents or guardians certain information on any State assessment or commercially-developed standardized assessment that will be administered in that school year.
 
The information provided in the attached chart is a tentative standardized assessment calendar.  The administration date indicates the window available for testing.  Each respective building will be creating testing windows that will provide for the least amount of disruption to the educational day.  If a student is permitted extra time or any other accommodations, the respective school administration and Special Services personnel will work together to schedule the appropriate accommodations.
 
Links to testing information, background data, and/or sample test problems where available for each of the specific tests are included in the chart. As each testing window nears, parents can expect a letter from their child's school detailing their specific protocols for that test administration.
 
If you have any questions, please contact your child's school.
