The Secaucus Public School District is making final preparations for PARCC administrations which will begin on March 2. The Performance Based Assessment (PBA) window is from March 2 to March 27 for Grades 3 to 11.
Schools have developed grade and subject-specific schedules that best accommodate their student population, staff and room and technological availability. Scheduled days for the PBA Math and ELA sessions are as follows:
- HS (Grades 9 to11): March 11 to March 23
- MS (Grades 7 and 8): March 2 to 6 and March 10
- Clarendon and Huber (Grades 3 to 6): March 2 to March 23
- Make ups for all four schools and all grades will be as needed from March 23 to March 27

The SPSD urges parents and guardians to use the on-line pre-registration system available on this website. Other residency, occupancy and medical documents will be required at the time of registration. Printed residency documents will still be available.
The cut off dates to enroll in Kindergarten and Pre-Kindergarten have been revised for the 2015/2016 school year. To register for Kindergarten, children must be five (5) years old on or before October 1, 2015. To register for Pre-Kindergarten, children must be four (4) years old on or before October 1, 2015. Students will be placed in a.m. or p.m.sessions of Pre-Kindergarten at a later time and based on total enrollment.
This coming June, Mrs. Martinelli-Wurst will travel U.S. Space & Rocket Center on the Huntsville campus of the University of Alabama. There she will receive a week of training in aspects of mathematics and science that she will bring back to her students and the entire Secaucus educational community.
