  • Update on Class of 2020 NJDOE Graduation Requirements

    The New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) has made an error in their communication with public schools as it relates to NJ high school graduation requirements and the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Career (PARCC). This error is impacting public schools across New Jersey, not just Verona High School. During the 2016-2017 school year, the NJDOE provided schools with a chart for graduation requirements as it relates to the State standardized assessment (PARCC). The chart of graduation requirements was included in our PARCC parent letter that we sent to parents in March 2018. On May 11, 2018, the NJDOE posted on its website that it had changed the Class of 2020 graduation requirements chart (see page 9 in the PARCC parent letter). On May 18, 2018, the NJDOE sent a clarifying email on this matter to all public school districts. Please click the above link for more details.
