Earlier this week, we posted the Common Core & Year End Standardized Testing OPT OUT FORM.
Many of you have downloaded this form, and some of you have already completed it and taken it to your child’s school. We have only had positive responses so far, and we are being told that schools are being respectful of your concerns as parents and your choice to opt out.
And to provide you with more information we’ve also just posted a Common Core Testing Opt Out FAQ by Dr. Walt Chappell. Please read it, download and share it along with the OPT OUT FORM.
Please join us at the State Board of Education meeting next Tuesday, August 13 to speak at the Citizen’s Open Forum at 10:30am about data collection, data-mining, standardized testing and ending Common Core in Kansas. The meeting starts at 10am, but please arrive early to sign up to speak for 3 minutes.
