In accordance with section 15.1-21-08, a student’s parent may direct the school district in which the student is enrolled not to administer to the student any state test or state assessment.
A parental directive is valid only if it is presented to the school district using the standardized form, prepared by the Department of Public Instruction, and signed by the student’s custodial parent.
One form must be completed for each student for each individual assessment. A parental directive is valid only until the conclusion of the school year in which it is received by the school district.
