My Opt Out Letter

I’m proud to say my daughter, of her own volition, wore her “my parents opted me out because” t-shirt to school today, when she took the letter in 🙂

February 10, 2015

Mr. Thomas Glennon, Principal
Linden Hill Elementary School
3415 Skyline Drive
Wilmington, DE 19808

Dear Mr. Glennon;

Our daughter, Caitlin E. Kook, is in 3rd grade with Mr. B- at Linden Hill Elementary School. It is our understanding that the 3rd grade will take the Smarter (formerly Smarter Balanced) Assessment at some point this spring. At this time we are formally notifying you that Caitlin will not be taking this assessment. Last year she was permitted to sit with a different class while her class was testing, and it is our expectation that she will follow this procedure again this year. If there is any concern about Caitlin’s educational progress, we are confident that Mr. B- and Mrs. H-, with whom Caitlin works through the Talented and Gifted program, are both qualified and capable to assess and address her needs.

Thank you for your time and attention to this matter.


David and Jackie Kook
