We, the undersigned, respectfully request the Medway School Committee allow parents of children assigned to the Spring 2014 PARCC trial assessment the ability to "opt-out" their child(ren).

At this time the PARCC assessment is not a State of Mass. mandated test, rather a test of a test. There is no law that allows the State of Mass. to mandate the random assignment of students/children to experimental programs. The PARCC trial is an experimental assessment which provides no benefit to our children, teachers or district and takes away valuable teaching time to a portion of our students/children.

Parents are being left out of decisions regarding the education of their children. Please allow our voices to be heard and give us the ability to opt-out of the PARCC Spring 2014 trial.

Thank You!
