Taking Back America By Taking Back Our Schools
I sent a letter to my child's principal saying I was opting her out of the AZ Merit test. He replied back in such a way as to tell me she wasn't allowed to opt out and that I wasn't allowed to share this information with anyone.
here is the email he sent:
I want to respond to your e-mail and let you know that In light of the Attorney General's letter sent out to all educators, we do not offer opt-out options for the AZ Merit test or any mandatory achievement tests mandated by the state; therefore, the Tempe Union High School District will follow the Attorney General's opinion on this matter. The Tempe Union High School District has no other choice but to follow the Attorney General's opinion.
I have attached the Attorney General's letter dated December 10, 2014. The Tempe Union High School District will abide by its contents; therefore, missing school solely due to the AzMERIT will result in an unexcused absence. Students will not be able to make up work, and will be scheduled for a make-up End-of-Course Assessment.
I have also attached an information sheet that I hope you find helpful.
Please refrain from sending out to our teachers and to our school, communication, information, and flyers that could be deemed disruptive to the education process as this can have a negative impact on our student’s education and have potential unintended consequences.
If you would like to meet and discuss this, I would be more than happy to do so.
