NOTICE! Refusing the AzMerit test will NOT impact your child’s grades in 2016!
Gov. Ducey signed SB1289 on March 26, 2015 that protects both schools and students from any ill effects of the AzMerit:
Sec. 2. Assessments; student letter grades; moratorium
“Notwithstanding any other law, a pupil’s score on an assessment selected pursuant to section 15-741, Arizona Revised Statutes, may not be used as a factor in determining a pupil’s letter grade in any particular course in school years 2014-2015 and 2015-2016.”
