Two Oklahoma school districts get F’s on report card

Farris Public Schools received an F for failing to test at least 90 percent of the students, in part because the Oklahoma Education Department invalidated a number of tests after finding irregularities.

Superintendent Wes Watson did not return phone calls Friday seeking comment.

Zero points

The other school district that received an F is Dustin Public Schools in Hughes County.

In fact, the district received zero points on a 4.0 scale.

The district failed in reading and math performance of all students, which accounts for 33 percent of the district grade.

The district also failed in the measurement of how those students are improving on state standardized tests which is 34 percent of the district’s grade.

Finally, for whole school performance, a measure of the district’s graduation rate, advanced coursework and student performance on college entrance exams, among others, the district failed. That accounted for the final 33 percent of the grade.

Pemberton said that Dustin Public Schools and the high school and elementary school in the district are not on any of the state’s other lists of schools that need improvement or special attention.

Dustin Superintendent Joe Cummings also did not respond to phone messages Friday.
