In March, thousands of students across the state of Colorado were opted out of PARCC tests by their parents. Seniors overwhelmingly refused to participate in the CMAS tests this fall. Elected Representatives are currently debating over a dozen testing bills in the legislature, including an Opt Out Bill. In preparation for the second round of PARCC testing beginning April 20th, EDU is providing an informational session with a diverse group of panelists to help answer your questions.
