Sample Opt Out Letters

We have updated our test refusal letter to reflect changes in federal education law (ESSA), but keep in mind that there is no “official” opt out letter. These letters are merely guides. Feel free to customize them for yourself or your school community!

Over 100 languages are spoken in NYC schools. Can you help us translate our letter into more than the few we have here? Please contact us to let us know.
