Join the WASL Boycott!
So far, I have had boycott
statements printed in the letter to the editor columns of the (Tacoma) News Tribune and The Seattle Times. I have two
7th graders, whose class will take WASL tests next spring. I will keep them home during testing. Is this legal?
Yes. Law states schools must administer WASL tests. It is silent on whether students must take the tests.
One thing parents should
check before allowing children to boycott WASL testing, is their attendance record. Make sure you and your child understand
any negative consequences of absences during testing.
If you find that absences
may affect your child's grades or school record, I would encourage you to find other means to protest the WASL.
