State Testing Information
We understand that schedules are busy, but it is VERY important that students be present for all testing dates. Please try to schedule doctor’s and other appointments around these dates and times as your child will be more successful testing in their normal classroom environment. Test makeup sessions will cause your student to miss more class time.
Oklahoma’s Promise Program
Oklahoma’s Promise is a unique program set up by Oklahoma legislatures for 8th, 9th and 10th grade students that will help pay for college tuition. To qualify, parental income needs to be below $50,000 at the time the student applies for the program. For more information, please visit www.okhighered.org/okpromise.
