OPT OUT

Parent reports the following:
Clayton District Assessment person says that you can opt out, but if more than 5% of any grade level does not complete the test, the district is given a "not adequate yearly progress" rating. So the state is punative toward the district. She believes that is in response to the laws in No Child Left Behind.
