    Testing Opt-Out Information:

    According to Pennsylvania School Assessment Handbook, the protocol for parental request for exclusion from the assessment is as follows:

    • Two weeks prior to each testing window, assessments will be available for review by parents and guardians. The assessment must be reviewed on district property and district personnel must be present at all times. Districts must provide a convenient time for the review. 

    • Parents and guardians must sign the Parent Confidentiality Agreement. Parents and guardians may not photocopy, write down, or in any other manner record any portion of the assessments, including directions. 

    • If after reviewing the test parents/guardians find the test to be in conflict with their religious beliefs and wish their student(s) to be excused from the test, the parents/guardians must provide a written request that states the objection to the Superintendent or Chief Executive Officer. 

    • If the student is excused from the assessment due to parental or guardian request, school personnel must provide an alternative learning environment for the student during the assessment. 


    Please contact your building principal with questions related to opting-out.
