Participation and non-participation letters schools may send to parents about the Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Biology 1 End-of-Course Exams. Parent letters are provided in English and in 14 additional languages for nine student populations.

These parent letters are Word documents that can be edited by school level staff members. Edits may include a school’s testing schedule, principal’s signature, and school phone number. If a student is included in two populations, e.g., IDEA-eligible and Home/Hospital Instruction, a customized parent letter can be created by inserting the appropriate text from the parent letter for each of these two populations.
