How do students get promoted

How do students get promoted?

In the spring, your third grade son/daughter will be taking an achievement test mandated by the state of Oklahoma.

  • This test is called the OCCT.

    To be promoted your child must score limited knowledge or higher on the OCCT Reading Section.


How do i know if my child is at risk of being retained

How Do I Know If My Child Is At Risk Of Being Retained?

Students are annually given assessments at the Beginning of the Year, Middle of the Year and End of the Year to determine if the student has a reading deficiency.

  • If the student demonstrates a reading deficiency, a plan is developed to improve the reading achievement of the student. If your child has had one of these plans* or if you have been told that your child is not reading on grade level, your child may be at risk of retention.

    * (These plans have changed names throughout the years – Reading Sufficiency Plan, Program of Reading Instruction, and the current name is the Academic Progress Plan.)

CAN I APPEAL TO THE SCHOOL BOARD FOR MY CHILD TO BE PROMOTED?
