    In 2011, Oklahoma lawmakers amended the Reading Sufficiency Act (RSA) to prohibit social promotion. Effective for the 2016-2017 school year, all 3rd grade students who score score below Proficient on the Oklahoma Core Curriculum Test (OCCT), will be retained in 3rd grade if they do not qualify for one of the  Good Cause Exemptions, allowed by the State of Oklahoma.
