• This morning, the Today Show reported that more and more parents are opting their kids out of state exams. The "opt out" movement is growing larger and across more states than ever before, putting districts at risk of losing funding and more.

    Where does your district stand on this widespread issue? What has your experience been during this "opt out" movement? Do you have any advice for school administrators dealing with the increasing number of parents who are opting their kids out of these tests?

    Please comment and share your experiences so we can create an ongoing resource for others. 

    Here's a link to the full story from the Today Show: http://www.today.com/parents/more-parents-joining-opt-out-movement-against-standardized-tests-t85906
