Resolution in Support of Parental Rights on Student Testing and Data Collection
WHEREAS: The State Board of Education acknowledges, respects and strongly supports the right of parents to make choices regarding their child’s participation in testing and related data collection about their child; and
WHEREAS: The State Board also strongly supports the right of parents to have complete, accurate and timely information about making the choice to refuse their child’s participation in testing and related data collection that is not specifically required by state and federal law; and
WHEREAS: The State Board strongly discourages any manner of action on the part of local school boards or school districts that interferes with any parent’s exercise of these rights, or that attempts to influence any parent’s legitimate choice for their child in connection with testing and data collection. Therefore,
BE IT RESOLVED: That the Colorado State Board of Education is committed to upholding parent rights on their child’s participation in testing and related data collection; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED: That this Resolution be provided to all school districts, BOCES organizations, and members of the General Assembly House and Senate Education Committees in order to obtain maximum publicity concerning parental rights related to testing and data collection so that parents may exercise these rights when appropriate.
