Hopefully he can get us a story on how Fulop supporter John Lynch got a job at DPW? Was the job posted on the city website?

Jersey City school district prepping for students 'opting out' of PARCC exams

Jersey City's school district may join a growing number of districts statewide that are creating policies for students whose parents are opting them out of controversial new standardized testing that begins next month.

A measure up for consideration at Thursday's Jersey City Board of Education meeting outlines what parents must do if they don't want their kids to take the new PARCC exams and what those students will do while others do.

BOE Vice President Marilyn Roman said the measure shouldn't be interpreted as opposition to the new tests, which are aligned with Common Core, new federal standards introduced into classrooms last year.

"We don't want to disrupt the other children or have a child just sit and do nothing," Roman said.

If approved by the BOE, the measure would require parents to contact Schools Superintendent Marcia V. Lyles in writing if they want their children not to take the computer-based PARCC exam. Any students not taking the test would be placed "in an alternate educational environment."

Too many parents opting out could cause a major problem: to receive federal funding, PARCC participation must not fall below 95 percent. That would deny Jersey City's 27,000-student school district about $27 million.

Opponents of the tests say New Jersey's waiver from federal No Child Left Behind standards eliminates the need for 95 percent participation, but state Department of Education spokesman Michael Yaple said the participation rate is in effect under the waiver.

School districts in Montclair and Livingston have also implemented policies regarding parents who are opting out of PARCC, which stands for Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers.

Some parents have said the tests, designed to be more rigorous than predecessors NJASK and HSPA, are too difficult for them, let alone their children. Prepping for the test is "sucking the life out of the children," one Jersey City teacher said at a state education hearing last week.

JERSEY CITY — It starts in the fall with benchmark assessments and student growth objectives and ends in the spring with final exams and AP tests.

In between, high school students have to take the annual state assessments in English and math, not to mention their regular schedule of classroom tests and quizzes.

The result, said Hanover Park Regional High School District Superintendent Carol Grossi, is hours of instructional time sacrificed in favor of testing and test prep. In other words, "a huge problem," Grossi said.

Grossi testified Wednesday in Jersey City in front of the Study Commission on the Use of Student Assessments in New Jersey. The commission was ordered by Gov. Chris Christie to study "the volume, frequency, and impact of student testing."

In a handout presented to members of the commission, Grossi outlined the testing schedule for one of her ninth grade students. Over the course of the school year, the student spends all or part of more than 15 different school days in standardized or other major testing, she said.

"I am concerned about how classroom instruction will be disrupted for weeks at a time to participate in testing," said Grossi, whose district has about 1,600 students in two high schools.

In courses with students from multiple grade levels, instruction may also be interrupted for the students who aren't pulled for testing, she said.

"If the students who are testing are not present in their classes, teachers may be reluctant to introduce new material," Grossi said.

Grossi said she hopes the nine-member panel can make positive recommendations to Christie to help students and schools, but said she knows it's a challenge.

The study commission acknowledged in a preliminary report last that week that students may be subject to too much testing, though not necessarily because of state tests.

It recommended schools review the universe of tests and quizzes being given in classrooms and determine the minimum testing necessary to serve diagnostic, instructional, and accountability purposes.

Wednesday was the first public testimony session before the commission and most of the 45 people who registered were parents or teachers expressing concerns about the new Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers exams. Several were the same speakers who flooded the state's Board of Education meeting earlier this month to criticize the tests.

The commission has yet to make any recommendations on PARCC, the Common Core standards introduced last year or the use of student data. However, it has identified each of those as key topics it will discuss and make recommendations on in its final report, due July 31, Education Commissioner David Hespe said last week.

The commission will hold another public testimony session at 6 p.m. Thursday at the Jackson Liberty High School auditorium in Jackson. A session on Tuesday in Camden County was canceled because of the weather.

Please be aware that there is a meeting scheduled for February 10th at the Bethune Center, on MLK, regarding the garbage transfer station for the Greenville Yards.

This is a NY/NJPA meeting to inform you that the transfer station is going ahead. If this transfer station happens your property values will be negatively impacted. The quality of life of South Greenville will be affected.

THIS IS SERIOUS

This is the THIRD attempt to use the Greenville Yards as a garbage transfer station. During the first attempt in 1993, Mayor Schundler supported the garbage transfer station, but the Jersey City Council opposed the project. It did not happen.

In 1999 the Port Authority attempted to get Mayor Healy to support the project. He refused to allow the project to move forward. Now in 2014, Mayor Fulop supported the transfer station in return for $10M for a park in the Heights. The Mayor did reverse his position. BUT, the meeting to discuss the garbage transfer station is scheduled. WHY?

All residents of Greenville, Port Liberte, Society Hill, all Jersey City must get Mayor Fulop AND the City Council to stop the NYC garbage transfer station to be built in the Greenville Yards.

PLEASE DON'T ABANDON THIS EFFORT!

Emails from Fulop, PANYNJ raises questions about ‘Garbage for Greenville’ deal
November 20, 2014 - Jersey City, News - Written by Michael Shurin - no comments
Emails and documents related to the building of a waste transfer facility in Greenville raises unanswered questions from Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

New emails and documents related to the building of a waste transfer facility in Greenville, a project that Mayor Fulop later halted, raise fresh questions about the process behind the scenes of a resolution approving the “execution of a memorandum of understanding [MOU] with IESI NY Corporation as the basis for a future host community agreement.”

The most serious question centers around the difference between a letter to the NYC Dept. of Sanitation attached to the City Council agenda, and the actual letter sent.

In the official letter dated October 6, 2014 – which was obtained through a public records request – Fulop writes about “expected council support” which was not in the letter attached to the council agenda.

Additionally, there is a difference in language regarding the MOU. In the actual letter sent it says, “reached an agreement” and in the council agenda it says “executed a letter agreement.”
