TPERN Opt Out Letter (Revised 2/21/18)

This master Opt Out letter was developed by the Texas Parents Educational Rights Network, drawing liberally from many fine examples shared by concerned parents across the state.  We expect that many districts will refuse to recognize the parents’ opt out rights.  In the database, you will also find a response letter to send after the school notifies you of its refusal to permit you to opt your child out of the STAAR examination.
