State Testing Requirements

The participation in state assessments is required by the Michigan Department of Education. The following is a statement from the that can be found in this communication from the Department of Education:

“The MDE understands and respects the rights of parents to make all manner of choices regarding the education of their students. However, there is no official ability in state or federal law for parents to have their child ‘opt out’ of the assessments, without counting against their school and district’s participation rates. Please also remember that any student in a Michigan public school is being taught Michigan content standards, and this is simply an opportunity to understand their progress in learning those standards.”
