CENTERVILLE, Ohio (WDTN) — Centerville parents can expect to soon receive letters in the mail to learn how their children did on third grade reading tests.
This is the first year students have to pass the test to be promoted to fourth grade.
Centerville Schools downloaded their testing data on Monday. “I think the results we got are fairly similar to years past, but I do think the one benefit has been the early identification of these students and providing additional intervention,” said Jeremy Miller, an employee with Centerville Schools.
The director of curriculum and instruction says just two of the 565 students who took the test in the district are at risk, another couple dozen are borderline. They’ll work with the students over the summer to help them pass.
We also reached out to Dayton Public Schools on Monday where about 450 third graders had not yet passed the state’s third grade reading test in the fall. School officials don’t have the spring scores back yet.
