This letter replaced the Do Not Score Letter. The TEA for many years has required the S code to be used with refused assessments. This letter asks them to remove the scores generated by the blank assessment document and replace it with a notification of non-participation. When they refuse, the letter provides them a parental statement which FERPA requires them to place in the student records.
Tips for Use of This Form:
1. It must be sent to both the TEA and the local school.
2. It should not be sent until you receive a score report. DO NOT SEND THIS WITH YOUR OPT OUT LETTER. Until you have scores, there is nothing to correct.
3. A separate letter should be send for each assessment.
4. You can go back and use this for previous assessments.
