TPS 3rd graders await result of alternate reading test

TULSA - Third graders at Tulsa Public Schools who failed a state reading test earlier this year should soon learn how they did on a make-up test, district officials said.

About 800 TPS third graders, or one-third, failed the state reading test. About 600 of them took an alternate test in summer school.

The alternate test is one of six exemptions that allows students to still be promoted to the fourth grade, if they pass.

Educators are in the process of figuring out how many students now qualify for promotion.

Students can take another alternate test on August 12th.
