AISD south austin? Middle school or High school? The principal mentioned in a meeting that our school has families that opt out but did not give details. This is our 1st year opting out.

We have had a lot of opt out parents in Richardson. If you search the group you can find people to private message about it. There is also a Facebook group: Richardson ISD Parents Opting Out of STAAR

I've asked for responses from the group. There is also an Austin ISD board here:

You should post there too!

Looking for anyone who has successfully opted out for Texas Virtual Academy Hallsville (TVAH) or Texas Online Preparatory School (TOPS). Both are the online public schools through K12. The handbooks specifically state that you cannot opt out and that STAAR testing is used for grade promotion in all grades. Any help is greatly appreciated!
