Kentucky's public school statewide accountability system depends on the testing of each and every student. Testing all students helps the state and local districts ensure that schools are serving all students and that gaps in categories of students are identified, addressed, and closed.
In Kentucky, districts are not permitted to honor a parent's request to opt out of the Kentucky Academic Standards or statewide testing. There is no authority in state or federal law allowing parents to opt out of the standards or statewide assessment system.
