Haledon Public School believes that assessment is an important component of good teaching and essential to understanding student learning. From the embedded formative assessments that every teacher uses daily to the structure of standardized assessments, it is our philosophy that gathering and analyzing these data help us to continually improve our work of teaching and learning.
In accordance with N.J.S.A. 18A:L7C-6.6, please be advised that the link to the Haledon Testing calendar informs you of the State assessments or commercially-developed standardized assessment that will be administered to students in the coming school year.

Parent Roadmaps to the Common Core Standards- (In English and Spanish)
The Council of the Great City Schools' parent roadmaps in English language arts/literacy provide guidance to parents about what their children will be learning and how they can support that learning in grades K-8. These parent roadmaps for each grade level also provide three-year snapshots showing how selected standards progress from year to year so that students will be college and career ready upon their graduation from high school.
