Bill announced to let special needs children opt out of Common Core testing

Posted:

ALBANY, N.Y. – A New York State Senator has announced legislation which would allow children with special needs to opt out of Common Core testing.

Senator Cecilia Tkaczyk announced the legislation on Monday. The bill would allo the parents or legal guardians of the students with special needs to opt out their children from Common Core and other standardized testing. However, parents would have to give the school principal 10 days notice.

The children who are opted out would receive educational programming that meets their Individualized Education Program (IEP) during the time the tests are being administered.
