No Opt-Out Testing Policy

Accountability of student achievement is the primary mission at Pinecrest Academy of Nevada. Assessments assist Pinecrest in determining student mastery of Nevada Academic Content Standards and assist in determining whether students are equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills they need to be successful in college and career. Therefore, every child enrolled at Pinecrest Academy of Nevada will participate in academic assessments.

Pinecrest Academy does not recognize parent opt out or parent/student refusal to test. If a parent keeps their child home during mandatory testing, the school will respond as it would with any situation where a parent keeps their child out of school utilizing the progressive attendance policy and the test will be made up upon the student’s return to school. If a student is at school and refuses to take the assessment, the school will respond in a similar manner to any other instance where a student refuses to participate in an assignment with progressive discipline measures.
