"Sit and Stare" not required.

There is much confusion about how schools should administer the state assessments to children whose families have made the decision to "refuse" the state examinations. 

As these two documents show:

1. Your child does not have to have the test placed in front of them for refusal- a parent letter will take care of the refusal.

2.  Your child does not have to "sit and stare" while other students work on the test.  I recommend working with your school and other parents as soon as possible to plan accommodations for students who are not taking the tests.
