received official notification that the Madill Public School District and the
Madill Elementary School have been placed on Year One of School Improvement. Anticipating
this, we began an intensive school improvement initiative at the beginning of
the school year. We have established teacher, administrator, staff, parent,
student and community school improvement leadership teams to look at our test
scores and other data to identify our areas of weakness, set goals for
improvement and arrange for intensive,
ongoing professional development training to enhance teaching and learning. We
are contracting with the OU Center for Effective Schools to guide us through this
intensive school improvement process, and we are optimistic that we will make
significant gains this year.
challenging time, we need the support of our parents and community more than
ever. Parents often ask how they can help. Suggestions are to make sure your
child gets plenty of rest at night and eats a good breakfast every morning. Set
aside a time every evening (at least thirty minutes) for homework and studies.
Try as much as possible to schedule routine doctor and dentist appointments
after school. As much as we promote regular attendance, please do not send your
child to school when they have symptoms of a contagious illness. Contact
principals if you are interested in volunteering at the school.
for your continued support of the Madill Public School system.
Mr. Jon A. Tuck
Superintendent of Schools
