Ready to opt out!

So now you know what opting out is. And you also know why you should do it.

Take a deep breath and get ready to inform your school. You can use a general opt out letter that has been working well for parents across the state. This letter is very similar to one I used last year to opt our PreK son out of his STAR assessments. Please feel free to customize this letter to suit your own particular needs.

Get your letter HERE!

Remember, you are your child’s best advocate.
