Good morning DPSCD families and students, 

This is an important message. A reminder to our 3rd grade students and families of the District’s position regarding student retainment and the “Read by Grade Three Law.” Although the U.S. Department of Education requires state testing, we want to assure you that regardless of the outcome of any state legislation, the District firmly believes that student retention is a decision that should be made between the school leader, teacher, and family. Know that the District will automatically grant exemptions as students qualify.  For questions or concerns, please contact your school's principal.
