Student Participation in Statewide Assessments
Minnesota Statutes, section 120B.31, subdivision 4a. Student Participation requires MDE to publish a form for parents/guardians to complete if they refuse to have their student participate in state-required standardized assessments and for districts to include MDE’s form on their district website. The Parent/Guardian Guide to Statewide Testing document provides some basic information to help parents/guardians make informed decisions that benefit their child and their school and community. The form to meet this legislative requirement is available at the link below:
Parent Guardian Guide and Refusal for Student Participation in Statewide Testing Form - Please submit this form to the administrator at the school your student attends.
Mounds View Schools will also accept, from a parent or guardian, a written letter or email expressing their request to have their student not participate in Minnesota Assessments.
