All STAAR tests results are in, but what does the future hold for kids who were opted out of the tests?
Thursday was the last day of the school year for Waco ISD students, and parents who choose to opt their kids out of the STARR tests were anxious to see their child’s final report card.
Kyle and Jennifer Massey have been leading the “opt out” movement in Waco.
The couple opted their 9-year-old son William out of the STAAR tests this year, but they say even though he was given a score of zero, he is still being promoted to the next grade.
However, the Massey’s learned Thursday that one of William’s friends who took the test and failed is now being required to go to summer school.
“In our case, it did not affect William’s academic standing, it did not affect whether or not he was promoted to the next grade, and it was in our view in the best interest of his learning,” Kyle Massey said.
Massey believes this is proof that opting out of the test is a more viable option.
