Thank you for your patience as we work through the parameters of the Reading Sufficiency Act/Third Grade Retention law. On Friday, May 9, 2014, we received the number of students, as well as the students identified that scored unsatisfactory on the third grade reading test. The list only included the students that scored unsatisfactory; it did not include the students that qualify for the good cause exemptions. We are spending time going over each student’s records and ensuring that we provide parents accurate information regarding their child’s promotion or no promotion to fourth grade.
If your child scored unsatisfactory, our plan is to call each parent by the end of the day on Monday, May 12th. We will discuss your child’s unsatisfactory test score and their grade level for the 2014-2015 school year.
One other valuable piece of information is that HB 2625 is currently being heard on the House floor today. This particular bill addresses and amends the Third Grade Retention law and we are watching this closely and will keep you informed.
If you have questions regarding your child’s third grade reading test scores or their good cause exemptions, please do not hesitate to contact your building principal.
Thank you for your patience and cooperation.

Dear Parents, Students, Community Members, and Employees,
Over the summer months, Duncan Schools will be developing a strategic plan for the district. The strategic plan will be used to review our mission, vision, district wide goals and objectives and perhaps establish new ones. The plan will be a road map to help prioritize our resources and efforts.
In order to effectively determine the needs and desires of our parents, students, community members, and district employees, we need your feedback. Your response will help guide and facilitate important decisions about Duncan Public Schools.
We are asking you to complete a survey that will take only about 10 minutes of your time. Your answers will be completely anonymous and your participation is highly valued and will contribute to the success of our district plan.
To participate in the survey visit our website at www.duncanps.org and click on Strategic Plan Survey.
Thank you for participating in this survey; your time is greatly appreciated.
Sherry Labyer, Ed.D.
