  1. I submitted a form to opt my child out of tge fall testing this year to his school, and I was informed (after they completed testing him) that optong out was not an option this year. Does anyone know if that is accurate?


    • Jane,
      Whether there is a policy in place or not regarding requiring testing varies from district to district. An appropriate next step for you would be to contact your principal or superintendent and ask for a copy of the policy.
      Some districts have requirements for taking all assessments. If they do, a valid question is, “What happens if we don’t follow the policy?” In grades 3-7, there are likely no ramifications from not testing. In high school, it remains unclear whether the state will require participation for graduation.
      In any case, more conversation between your school administration and your family seems necessary. You can email us directly at [email protected] if you’d like to discuss more particulars with us we are happy to help.
