Beginning in February 2022, the TEA has volunteered Texas students to act as free labor for the testing contractors to create a new generation of STAAR assessments. To do this they will be “field testing” various forms of the assessment on Texas students. And contrary to law, they will not let parents see the assessment instruments.
Use this letter to Opt Out of STAAR field testing. Unlike the Spring administrations, where the schools read the opt out provision differently than we do, there is no colorable legal basis to deny field test opt outs.
