Reading Sufficiency Act
Focused on Students Reading by Grade 3
In the spring, your third grade son/daughter will be taking an achievement test mandated by the state of Oklahoma.
To be promoted your child must score limited knowledge or higher on the OCCT Reading Section.
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.
* (These plans have changed names throughout the years – Reading Sufficiency Plan, Program of Reading Instruction, and the current name is the Academic Progress Plan.)
According to the Oklahoma State Department of Education, a parent CANNOT appeal the decision of retention for a third grade student who does not score Limited Knowledge or higher on the OCCT.
The school will work with parents to effectively plan the best strategy to increase the retained student’s reading success. The school will continue remediation based on this academic progress plan.
Yes – There are six “Good Cause” exemptions for some students who score Unsatisfactory on the reading test.
