Union Elementary Schools Post Double-Digit Reading Test Gains, Unofficial Scores Show

When classes start Wednesday for Union Public Schools, the faculty members at the district’s elementary schools will have a little something extra to celebrate.

Unofficial scores from Oklahoma State Testing Program released to districts earlier this summer indicate all of 13 Union’s elementary sites posted double-digit reductions in the number of students requiring a reading remediation plan under Oklahoma’s Reading Sufficiency Act.

“There is growth,” said Theresa Kiger, executive director for elementary education at Union. “As I’ve explained it to our Title I families, it’s like an onion: We have to take some time and peel back the layers — as we’re not necessarily going to see huge growth immediately. Our children have holes in instruction from past two and three years, so we’re having to go back and fill those holes in. This way, we can continue to see the growth moving forward.”
