Parent School Improvement Notification Letter

Dear Parent/Guardian:

We have 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.

During this 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.  

Thank you for your continued support of the Madill Public School system.



Mr. Jon A. Tuck

Superintendent of Schools
