Superintendent of Public Instruction
SUBJECT:
 
Data Collection Forms for Students Not Graduating Because
They Have Not Passed the Literacy Passport Test

 
  Informational Superintendent's Memo #107 dated June 7, 1996
  referenced a two-stage data collection process regarding
  students who are not graduating this year solely because
  they have not passed all portions of the Literacy Passport
  Test (LPT).  Superintendent's Memo #107 conveyed the first
  part of the data collection; the purpose of this memo is to
  convey the second part.
  
  Attached are data collection forms and instructions to
  collect detailed information regarding these students.  We
  have tried to ask for the pertinent information in an
  efficient manner.  One form should be filled out for each
  student not graduating this June solely because he or she
  has not passed all portions of the LPT.  We have enclosed
  five (5) copies for each school division.  Please feel free
  to make additional copies as necessary.  
  
  These data collection forms are due to the Department of
  Education on or before July 17, 1996.  We extend our
  appreciation to you in seeing that we are provided with this
  important information.  Questions about this data collection
  should be directed to Judy Singh at (804) 786-1390, Dan
  Keeling at (804) 371-2769 or Cam Harris at (804) 225-2913.
