SPS Testing Window Opens Next Month

The Springfield Public Schools annual testing window will open next month. As a reminder, opt out forms for Oregon's statewide summative tests are available for families wishing to exercise their rights to opt their student out of the statewide assessments for Math and/or ELA. 

Students in grades 3-8 and 11 take the Smarter Balanced tests (or Oregon Extended Assessment, for certain students with disabilities) in the spring. Most students participate in state testing, but parents have the right to opt their children out if they choose.

House Bill 2655 permits parents and adult students to annually opt-out of Oregon’s statewide summative tests in English Language Arts and Math by submitting the form provided below.
