Smarter Balanced State Assessments
TMS students participate in annual statewide testing in the areas of language arts and math using an assessment tool known as Smarter Balanced. While we recommend that all students take the assessment to give parents and our teachers' valuable information as to their academic growth and progress, we recognize that Oregon House Bill 2655 gives parents/guardians the right to opt their student out of these tests. If you choose to do so, you must download the form below, complete it, and return it to the TMS office prior to the beginning of the assessment. Alternatively, you may come into our office to get a hard copy of the form.
