Students at Canton Elementary, Reuben Myers Canton School of Arts & Sciences, and Goodloe Elementary School who did not past the T hird Grade Reading Summative Assessment  will be retested Tuesday, May 19, 2015. 
Students are required by the Mississippi Literacy-Based Promotion Act to pass this test for promotion to the 4 th Grade. Interventions were provided at a Saturday "Boot Camp" to help students master the test.
Students scoring at the lowest achievement level on this assessment will also have the opportunity to be reassessed over the summer if they do not past on their second attempt.  Students who still do not demonstrate proficiency will not be promoted to the 4 th grade unless he/she qualifies for an exemption. All information related to a child's promotion status will be communicated to parents in writing. Parents please encourage your children to get plenty of sleep, eat a good breakfast , read instructions carefully and do their best on the test!   



 "Boot Camp"
Students got on the bus to use their Saturday to get intense interventions to help them master the 3rd Grade Reading Gate Test.
