from Collinsville Public Schools April 8, 2014
Collinsville Public Schools Board of Education adopted an
OPT out policy on April 7, 2014. This is a response to increased
questions from parents about getting their children out
of state and federally mandated standardized tests and field
testing. It is a way to inform parents that the district
respects their rights and the potential consequences to
the student, school, and district if those rights are exercised.
district is required to test a minimum of 95% of enrolled
students or face sanctions from OSDE. The OSDE does not
recognize the legal right of any parent/guardian or student
to opt out of the district's standardized testing program.
As a result the OSDE requires that all students be provided
with appropriate tests pursuant to the district's testing
program. Any documentation of opting out or refusal to test
will be kept by the district.
parent/guardian who does not want his/her student to participate
in the district's testing program must submit an opt out
form to the building principal by the end of the day APRIL
9 TH, 2014. If a timely opt out form is on file with the
district, the student will be placed in an alternate school
area during the testing session.
apologize for the short notice but this policy had to be
board approved before made available.
