The NJDOE recognizes the complexity of the circumstances in schools across the state and will closely monitor developments related to the COVID-19 pandemic throughout the school year. Additionally, the NJDOE will continue to engage with USDE, assessment experts and the Council of Chief State School Officers on the national issue of state assessments and will keep school administrators and educators apprised of any new information through additional broadcasts as necessary.
