*UPDATE* The Ohio Department of Education released the following statement and information regarding state testing opt-out: "The department encourages schools to talk with families about their
concerns regarding testing. To help inform this conversation, the department
has developed this
information for districts and families about student participation in state
tests. 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. It also details the
consequences for students, teachers and districts when students do not
participate in state tests."
Due to continuing requests for information regarding testing opt-outs, we have re-sent the January 13 Tuesday Talk that addresses this issue. As the testing window nears, please review this information and share with fellow administrators. Click here to view this in a browser window.
