    The Aspen School District believes that one essential part of educating students successfully is assessing their progress in learning to high standards. Done well and thoughtfully, assessments are tools for learning. While it is a parent's right to opt their child out of state mandated assessments, we ask parents to please consider not opting your child out of the next state assessments taking place in April. Please READ MORE...

    If you will be exempting your student from testing, please complete this OPT OUT FORM. As all teachers will be proctoring assessments during school hours, all AMS students who opt out of testing will need to remain off campus during the testing sessions. Please call Molly Tiernan at extension 2006 if you have any questions regarding testing or the testing schedule.
