Shoreham-Wading River School District Steven Cohen has issued a letter answering frequently asked questions about the opt-out movement.
This year, in the Riverhead and Shoreham-Wading River districts, and at the Riverhead Charter School, more parents than ever before are refusing to let their children sit for the upcoming state assessments.
In the letter, Mr. Cohen explains Shoreham’s position on students refusing to take state assessments and details what happens to those students that don’t take the tests.
The state is mandating New York public schools to administer English Language Arts assessments April 1-3 and math assessments April 30-May 2 to students in grades 3 through 8.
