Exploring The Reading Sufficiency Act (RSA)
Who should come and why?
All Third Grade Parents are encouraged to attend Parent Chat. It will explore, The Oklahoma Reading Sufficiency Act SB346, a bill that was enacted in 1997, but amended in 2011-2012. This amendment includes a third grade retention mandate for all third graders who score unsatisfactory on the reading portion of the statewide criterion-referenced test (CRT).
