View Full Version : All NYC opting out statewide tests

The yearly NYS statewide tests are here again. I'm considering opting out my 8th grader this year because I think the testing is overly excessive this year for him. He just finished the midterms in December. Now it's the statewide tests. Regents are just around the corner. Has anyone opted out of the statewide tests before? How should I go about it?

From what I have heard, you need to make your decision as soon as possible. You cannot opt out the day of the test. I am feeling stress myself, with what you have stated above and more. I am still doing my statewide exams. Just saying.
