Can I Opt my student out of testing?
Dear Century Parents/Guardians:
The 2018 required state assessment window is quickly approaching.
While the state law now allows parents to opt their child(ren) out of state testing, it is important that we complete the 6-8 grade testing with a 95% or better completion rate to keep our school in the state’s top performance rating. The state penalty for not adequately testing students is to drop a school’s rating one full performance level. If you are going to opt your child(ren) out of testing, a legal guardian with a valid ID will need to stop by the school and complete an opt out form in the main office by 3/16/17.
If you choose to send your child to school on a testing day, please note that we are limited on the number of teachers and rooms for your student. Your student may be asked to join another grade level of students while his/her grade level is testing for up to 190 minutes (over 3 hours).
Thank you for your continued partnership with Century Middle School.
