Support your child’s participation in state testing.
Withhold your child from school during the testing window. With this option, please be aware of compulsory attendance rules (see Texas Education Code 25.093 and Texas Family Code 65.003).
Send your child to school during the testing window, acknowledging that the appropriate STAAR exam will be administered to your student. If your child refuses to test, the test will be submitted for scoring.
