All students are encouraged to participate in CAASPP since results provide valuable information about student progress for both parents and teachers. However, parents/guardians may request that their child not be tested with any CAASPP assessment in any content area. A written request must be submitted annually to the student’s school prior to testing. The written request must include the student’s name, school, grade, and specific tests to be exempted. The request must be signed and dated. Stating a reason for the request is not required. Per state guidelines, if the request is received after testing has begun, any test items already completed will be scored with results reported.
