Smarter Balanced Assessments (SBAC)

Third through Sixth grade students complete the Smarter Balanced Assessments each year. Please see the links below from Oregon Department of Education regarding the 2015-16 Notice for Statewide Assessments.



On November 9, ODE published a combined 30-day notice and opt-out form for Oregon's statewide summative tests as part of its implementation of House Bill 2655. As described in the accompanying numbered memo 003-2015-16: Exemption from Statewide Summative Tests Update, districts are required to use this combined notice and form to communicate with all parents about state testing requirements and their right to opt-out by January 9, 2016. Translated versions of the form (including Spanish, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, Korean, Russian, and Somali) are now available online. While districts are welcome to supplement this notice and opt-out form with additional communications that provide local context, districts may not make modifications to the notice or form itself.
