Parents Right to Exempt from State Testing
A parent or guardian may annually submit to the school a written request to excuse his or her child from any of all parts of any test provided pursuant to Education Code section 60640 for the school year. If a parent or guardian submits an exemption request after testing has begun, any test(s) completed before the request is submitted will be scored and the results reported to the parent or guardian and included in the pupil’s records. An LEA and its employees may discuss the CAASPP assessment system with parents and may inform parents of the availability of exemptions under Education Code section 60615.
AVUSD’s Smarter Balance testing window begins April 5 through May 20, 2016. If you chose to have you child not participate please notify your child’s school site prior to the start of the testing window.
