Vast Majority of O-D Elementary Students Pass IREAD 3 Test

The IREAD 3 results are in, and Oregon-Davis Elementary Principal William Bennett has announced some good news: 97.5 percent of Oregon-Davis Elementary students passed the test. The 2.5 percent of students that did not pass the test will be given extra instruction, and will have one chance to retake the test this summer. If they fail the test a second time, they will be required to receive reading instruction at the third-grade level for the 2012-2013 school year.

Bennett says he is extremely proud of all the third-grade students, parents, and staff, for “making sure students have the essential skills to become lifelong readers.” He credits early Title 1 reading interventions, full-day kindergarten, parental support, and the school’s dedication to the 90-minute reading block as key factors that led to this great success on the IREAD 3 test.
