PSSA Opt Out for Other Reasons *New*

There is a new reason listed on the PSSA testing booklet and PSSA Handbook for Assessment Coordinators listed for opting out of the PSSA assessment.  See below:

PSSA Handbook for Assessment Coordinators (click and go to page 11)

  1. Student had a parental exclusion based on other reasons: If a parent refuses to have his/her student participate in the assessment but does not provide a reason in accordance with Chapter 4 rules, school personnel must select “Student had a parental exclusion based on other reasons.” Students who do not participate in the assessment due to parental request will negatively affect the school’s participation rate and can potentially have a negative impact on the school’s accountability status.
