    I have 2 students that will be Seniors next year, well the upcoming school year and I sent in an opt out letter 2 months prior to his and her counselor and never heard from anyone until the week before the test. The main problem that I am having is they switch teachers like towels there, and this messes with the students learning capabilities all by itself. I want them opt out because this is really stressful for them. I need for someone to reach out to Me regarding the measures that I need to take so that they do not have to deal with this next year! Thank you!
