NOTICE! Opting out of the AzMerit will NOT impact your child’s grades in 2015 & 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.”
