Notice to Parents for Testing Options

New legislation, which amended M.S. 120B.31, Subd. 4a, requires school districts to provide notice to parents or guardians of their option to refuse to have their students take the statewide assessments. The Commissioner of the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) was tasked by the Legislature with developing a form for this opt out.

Please complete this form and return it to the office of the school building your child attends.
The form is available at
