PLEASE “OPT-0UT” MY CHILD FROM FEDERALLY ALIGNED TESTS

Dear [Name of school superintendent]:
Please opt-out [first and last name of child] from all tests that are federally aligned with Common Core Standards for the 2014-15 school year. I do not want my child’s personal data collected by the school district. I do not want my child’s academic records made available to any educational entity, stakeholder, or agent other than the current district teachers and administrators. I do not want my child to experience any biometric evaluations for any reason.
If a non-federally aligned test is being used to assess my child’s academic progress, I want to know in advance. Teacher-prepared quizzes, chapter tests, and a final exam for each subject are acceptable forms of testing. The results of these tests may be shared only with certified staff serving the school district(s) in which my child is enrolled.
Thank you for helping protect my child’s privacy.
Respectfully,
YOUR NAME
