We are excited to announce a change to our student 1:1 iPad initiative. We are introducing the iPad Summer Take-Home Program. Starting today, we are giving you the option to keep your iPad during the summer or return it until the start of the 2018-2019 school year.
Students with no outstanding fines who elect to keep their iPad during the summer must pre-purchase the $50/year iPad Care Plan (insurance) before June 13, 2018. This care plan payment will cover the device during the summer and through the end of next school year (two incidents per year). Please review the financial responsibility and insurance guidelines below. Payment can be made in the Board of Education office between the hours of 8am and 3pm, Monday through Friday. We accept cash and checks made payable to “Clayton Board of Education.”
Students who have outstanding fines or opt out of the iPad Summer Take-Home Program will have their devices collected on June 14, 2018.

I would like to invite you to join our Principal’s Advisory Board (PAB). Parent involvement is one of the major factors in improving schools.
Clayton High School recognizes your importance and actively solicits your participation. The Principal’s Advisory Board provides a link between the community and school.
Parents hear about new programs and discuss ways of improving the High School experience for our students. The PAB is an important decision making group and I encourage you to join us.
Please contact Terri Tornatore (firstname.lastname@example.org) to join this group at 881-8701 ext 1001.
This year New Jersey will again be administering the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) as the statewide assessment for all students enrolled in grades three through eleven. This is a computer-based test that will assess your child’s knowledge of the curriculum standards in two areas – Mathematics and Language Arts.
This streamlined schedule was designed to maximize instructional classroom time and minimize test taking time. This is a computer administered test. This schedule is subject to change.
High School LAL testing is scheduled for April 24th, 25th and Math testing April 27th, 30th.
Students will participate in testing with their grade level and/or subject area. PARCC assessments are scheduled in 2 1/2 hour blocks.
Students with IEP/504 accommodations may have alternate schedules based on specific provisions outlined in their IEP/504 plans. We are asking students to bring a book with them from their classroom library, media center, or home. If they finish testing early, they will be asked to read quietly until the end of the session.
HS Students: 12th grade Non-test takers will report to school by 7:43 and they will be dismissed at 12:15 each day. On Math testing days, Calculus and Pre-Cal students will report to school at 7:43 and stay for a full day.
Parent/student checklist for PARCC:
