About the Survey Results
Q: I don’t see my school district in the results report even though my child is opting out.
A: A particular school district will appear on the results report only when at least one person has submitted a survey response. If you are the first from your school district to submit a response and your school district isn’t listed in the next updated report, please send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you know of other students in your school district who will be opting out of STAAR, please share the survey with them!
About Opting Out
Q: How do I opt out? My child’s teacher/school administration tells me it can’t be done.
A: It can be done, and has been done by hundreds, if not thousands, of students around the state. For the ins and outs of opting out and the legal authority for doing so, please visit txedrights.net/opting-out-step-by-step. Join one of the many Facebook groups dedicated to opting out of STAAR – start one for your school or area if you don’t find one!
Q: How do kids who opt out progress to the next grade since STAAR is a promotion requirement for certain years?
