Kindergarten Readiness Assessment Helps Make the Most of Your Child's First Year of School
It is important to the Vinton County Local School District that we get every kindergarten student off to a good start. That is because the learning that takes place in kindergarten sets the stage for a child’s coming school years.
This year, we are using Ohio’s Kindergarten Readiness Assessment to find out how to teach your child best. The teacher will do the assessment right in the classroom. Most children don’t even know that they or their classmates are being assessed.

STUDENT PARTICIPATION IN STATE TESTS
Federal and state laws require all districts and schools to test all students in specific grades and courses. There is no law that allows a parent or student to opt-out of state testing and there is no state test opt-out procedure or form. If a parent withdraws his or her child’s participation in certain state tests, there may be consequences for the child, the child’s teacher, and the school and district.
Schools should provide the information below and other district consequences in writing to parents that withdraw their child or children from state tests. Though there is no requirement in law, schools may want to request that parents document this decision in writing to record the reason why the student was not tested.
