Dear Parent/Legal Guardian,


To clarify any misunderstanding about the Behavioral and Emotional Screening System (BESS) through the online portal, we are allowing parents to update their consent due to a system error. If you signed the BESS Information Letter (now named BESS Opt-Out Letter) previously through the online registration process but would like for your child to participate in screening, you will not need to submit the BESS Opt-Out Letter. If you do not want your child to participate in the BESS screening, you must return a signed BESS Opt-Out Letter to your child’s school. Links to Parent Resources for the BESS are available below:
