State Assessments - There are many changes regarding state-mandated assessments in Wisconsin. Please refer to the following link to view the state assessments that all districts must follow.
Note: Parents/guardians may request that a student be excused from participating in the WSAS, this request must be honored at grades 4, 8, 9-11, per Wis. Stats. 118.30(2)(b)3. The parent must make this request in writing. All students excused by parent opt-out are marked as “not tested” students in school and district reporting determinations.
