Smarter Balanced Tests and Opt-Out Option

New for 2015-16, House Bill 2655 establishes a new policy for exempting students from the Smarter Balanced assessments.  To opt-out of the tests, you may access the 2015-16 Opt-Form on the District’s website, under ODE Smarter Balanced Opt Out Form.  Complete form and return it, by February 1st, to Periwinikle Elementary.  By signing the Opt-Out form, you may lose valuable information about how well your child is progressing in English Language Arts and Math.  Opting-out may impact efforts by the District to equitably distribute resources and support student learning as well.  Please contact the school if you have any questions.
