Updated! State Testing News

Updated: Apr 13




Dear Families of Students in Grades 3 through 5,


Last week we were informed by the Department of Education that families will need to OPT IN to state testing this year. Unlike in previous years, where the default was that students would take state exams unless a parent opted them out, this year the DOE is requiring that families who want their children to take the state test(s) actively opt in to testing. Families must complete one of the forms linked below, no later than Thursday, April 15th, if they want their children to take the state tests this year.


Here are the slides from the testing meeting held on April 13, 2021.


Fully-Remote Families: The New York State tests can only be given in person at school. If you want to opt your child IN to state testing this year, please complete the survey linked below. (If you have already completed the form, you do not need to submit it again.)

Fully-Remote families opting IN for testing must complete this form:

Blended Families: If you want to opt your child IN to state testing this year, please complete the survey linked below. Note that if you do not complete the form, your child will not take this year’s test(s).
