AzMERIT opt-out

While there is a bill in the Arizona legislature that would allow parents to opt their students out of statewide testing, current state statute does not permit parents to opt their students out of statewide testing. Even if this bill passes before the end of the AzMERIT test window, it will not go into effect until sometime this summer. The December 2014 letter from the Office of the Arizona Attorney General confirming that parents may not refuse to allow their students to participate in mandatory achievement assessments including AzMERIT is posted here on the Assessment website.
