ODE Opt Out Form and Notice of Statewide Testing


Under the Student Assessment Bill of Rights, the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) and Oregon’s school districts must provide families with a “Notice of Statewide Tests and Opt-out Form” 30 days before the start of statewide testing.

This year, school has been significantly disrupted by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and other factors. In response, ODE asked the United States Department of Education for a temporary pause (also known as a “waiver”) in English Language Arts (ELA) and Math testing. A pause is also being requested for science testing, but science testing is not subject to this opt-out rule.

• If this waiver request is approved, then statewide ELA and Math testing will not happen this year, and there will be no need for parents to submit opt-out forms to their child’s school.

• If the waiver request is not approved, test windows will open on April 13, 2021. ODE will update your district regularly with news about the waiver.

ODE 30-Day Notice & Opt-Out Form

**Please return form to your school’s main office.

Our Principal

I am a proud husband and father of three girls. My roots run deep in Central Oregon as I grew up in Powell Butte and then moved promptly back to Central Oregon shortly after finishing my Master’s degree at Western Oregon University. Personally, I am an unwavering Oregon State Beaver fan and alumnus. I love to fly fish, hunt, coach basketball and softball, read and work with my hands.
 I have had the pleasure of teaching, coaching, advising and being a school leader at the High School, Middle School and Elementary levels for the past 17 years. My passion for people, education and love of supporting the growth of all students has always driven me to seek creative ways to support the wonderful professionals and families in our community. It is an honor and privilege to serve the John Tuck and Redmond School District families. I love getting to know each family and partnering with them to help each student find their inner drive for learning and life. I look forward to many more years supporting the students, families and professionals in the Redmond School District. We are truly fortunate to live and grow together in Redmond!”
