While Other Districts Ignore Opt-Out, Christina Aims To Revise Their Policy

Christina Board of Education member Elizabeth Paige is looking to revise the district’s policy on opt-out at their next meeting on Tuesday, August 11th.  Paige drafted the original policy passed last Spring by the board on a 6-1 vote.  With three districts honoring parent opt-out in Delaware, including Capital and Red Clay, Christina is the first to actually revise their policy.

I spoke with Elizabeth Paige, and she wanted not only Christina residents, but all residents of the state to know the following:

“The CSD Board passed a resolution in March expressing its support for parents’ rights to opt students out of state standardized testing. An official Board policy is a natural progression from that and will help ensure that the rights we professed to support are honored in the most professional, efficient way possible.

I am disappointed that the Governor vetoed HB50, but his veto does not mean that local school districts can’t continue to support and honor parents and their rights.”

This policy will be read officially on Tuesday evening to the other members of the board, and it is my hope it is passed unanimously!  To read the policy, please read below:

I am a proud parent of a son with Tourette's Syndrome and several other co-morbidities. I write on this blog to educate other parents so they know a bit more about not only special education, but all the really bad things that are happening with public schools in Delaware and the USA. We are all in this together, and if our children aren't able to advocate for themselves it's up to us parents! We need to stop letting companies run our schools, and demand our children get a proper education. Our Departments of Education in our states have become weak with fear from the bullying US DOE, and we need to take back our schools!

  1. Not a policy revision, it is converting a resolution into a policy.

    Much stronger sentiment here.

    Essentially, we are going to try and insert opt out into the district’s DNA, with this move.
