We, parents of Madison Metropolitan School District students , are writing to state our full support of our teachers and our administrators. While we have chosen to opt out our children of the Badger Exam (aka Smarter Balanced Assessment), we hope you understand that it is not our intent to undermine our named school, staff, or MMSD. We hold our schools, teachers and administrators in high regard and know that schools do important work. Opting out isn’t a decision we take lightly. We believe opting out is the right thing to do for our children and for our schools.
Thank you for taking the time to listen to us. We hope that our decision to Opt Out is seen as a sign of support for our teachers, students and schools, and that we can work together to improve public school for all of Wisconsin’s students.
NB: This form is not intended to be used for opting out. Please contact your principal to opt out.
