Opting Out of Oregon Summative Assessments

House Bill 2655 allows parents to opt-out of Smarter Balanced in English Language Arts and/or Math for any reason using a state developed Opt-Out Form. This rule for opt-out of state testing must be completed annually.

OAR 581-022-1910 allows parents/guardians to request that the district excuse their student from OAKS Science, ELPA21, Kindergarten Assessment, and Extended Assessments based on either a disability or a religious belief.

Oregon law (House Bill 2656) requires each school district to make the SEED Survey available to students in grades 3-11. Parents/guardians may decline to have their student participate in the SEED Survey.
