State Testing Opt-Out

Huskies,

The state of Oregon has submitted a waiver for state testing in Oregon. We have not heard a response from the Department of Education yet, so we are moving forward with our planning. If you would like to OPT OUT of state testing, please fill out the waiver and email it to megan.storey@redmondschools.org OR have your student return it to the main office.
