Letter to parents from KSDE

Earlier this week we received a copy of this letter.  The letter was shared with us by parents that contacted the KSDE for documentation supporting their request to use the Opt Out Form for their students.

We’ve also been doing some updating.  You can now find a Opt Out menu with the following information:

  1. After a careful reading of this letter, I think she is saying that it is up to you to opt out and that the KSDE has no authority to authorize it.

    Is that the way you read the letter?


    • Hi Jack
      She is giving authorization to opt out of the state assessment, but she can not give authorization to opt out of tests used by local districts, such as MAP. A person would have to go to the local superintendent to gain that authorization.
