Request for Facilitated Refusal

This is a new form letter to be used after you’ve been back and forth with the school using the master opt out letter and potentially the follow up refusal letter.  By this time you’ve likely received a form letter or email from the school saying things like that can’t “exempt” your child (we didn’t ask) or that all students present must be given the opportunity (how lucky!) to be assessed.

This letter points them to the TEA position that a school can accept a parental refusal and does not have to put the assessment in front of the child.  This letter requests that they work together and acknowledges what the TEA requires the school to do (document your refusal, submit the blank assessment for scoring).
