    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.
