Can the school test my child if they do not ask me first, or if I do not agree?

Produced by Massachusetts Law Reform Institute & Justice Center of Southeastern Massachusetts
Created February, 2022

The school district can only test your child if you agree. They can only do a test if you sign a ‘consent form.’ 

The consent form asks you to agree to an evaluation.  The form lists the tests the school plans to do. On the consent form, you can agree to all the tests that the school proposes or you can agree to only some of them.
