    • Students should only bring headphones and or ear buds (If your child does not have them they will be provided by the test administrator).
    • Students found with personal electronic devices in their possession during testing will be removed from the test site and have disciplinary consequences.
    • Students in the class of 2020 are required to take the PARCC Assessment.
    • Juniors who are registered to take the AP Exam in AP Language are exempt from taking English Language Arts sections on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.
    • Juniors who are enrolled in Mathematics beyond Algebra II are exempt from taking the Mathematics sections on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. (All students enrolled in Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra 2 will take the PARCC in math. Seniors enrolled in these courses will take it as well).
    • The following is the link for the graduation requirements for the classes of 2020, 2019, and 2018:
    • The following is the link for PARCC tutorials and practice tests:

    Seniors (who are not in a PARCC tested course) with their own means of transportation may report to school at 9:15 on testing days.  Seniors should enter the building only through the main entrance as testing will be taking place throughout the building. Once in the building, seniors will sign-in and wait in the auditorium until the conclusion of testing.  Any senior arriving to school prior to 9:15 should report directly to the auditorium.  Students and staff will follow a modified version of the delayed opening schedule after the conclusion of testing.  If you have any questions regarding the upcoming PARCC testing, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s counselor, Mrs. Nadler, or me.



    Recently, seven Morris County school districts were recognized by the College Board and named to the 7th Annual AP (Advanced Placement) District Honor Roll. The AP District Honor Roll recognizes school districts across the U.S. and Canada for increasing AP access to students while simultaneously maintaining or increasing the percentage of students earning AP exam scores of 3 or higher, according to a press release from the College Board. The districts were Butler, Jefferson, Randolph, West Morris Regional and the Morris County Vocational School District.  "We are very proud of this prestigious recognition for the students and staff at Jefferson Township High School and congratulate all those involved in promoting the highest level of student achievement."   We currently offer 21 AP Courses. Well done everyone.
