Grade 8 Technology Instructional Tool Letter

May 9, 2018

Dear Parents:

Advances in technology have drastically changed the way we interact with the world and each other.  Our students must be able to harness the power of technology to live, solve problems and ultimately learn in college.  To that end, 8th grade students are required to complete an instrument that will be used as an instructional tool for curriculum writing and course sequence in the years to come.  Furthermore, we are required, by the New Jersey Department of Education, to assess students’ knowledge in the area of technology.  We do have some flexibility in how we assess students’ knowledge and this instrument will provide essential data in our effort to better serve students. Attached you will find a list of frequently asked questions which will help you to better understand the process.  If you should have any questions, please feel free to direct them to kjohnson@montclair.k12.nj.us.

Sincerely,
Kendra V. Johnson
Superintendent
