A message from National PTA’s President Leslie Boggs:
I know that there has been confusion and uncertainty aligned with assessments. In response, your National PTA’s Board of Directors met last week and has approved two amendments to the 2016 position statement on assessment. These important changes were collaboratively developed by National PTA’s Legislation Committee with input and insight from many volunteers. The two amendments were added to the 2016 position statement on assessments to highlight that states should have flexibility during a national emergency or crisis in both delivery and administration of assessments to ensure that all students are assessed equitably in a safe environment.
Below, please find links to:

- Updated guidance on the position statement
Thank you for all that you do for PTA.
