State Assessment Parent Portal Now Available...
The Oklahoma State Department of Education, along with testing vendor Measured Progress, has released the Parent Portal for accessing student assessment records! Parents/guardians may now log in to access student reports.
The Oklahoma Parent Portal is designed to provide students and parents with online access to a student’s state assessment scores. This portal will assist a student and his or her parents/guardians with tracking assessment information throughout the student’s academic career. The portal now provides scores from the OSTP 2016-2017 and 2017-2018 assessments. The following resources have been posted on the OK Help and Support Site and will help you share this new feature with families.
Access the Parent Portal at https://okparentportal.emetric.net/

CPS Implements SchoolMessenger System...
Cordell Public Schools is implementing a new program called SchoolMessenger this year. This new system will allow us to notify parents and guardians of student absences, lunch bills, school closings, important announcements, and emergency situations. Messages and phone calls will come from the school's phone number 580-832-3420. We will notify you based on your preferred method of phone call, email, or text messages. Please help us by verifying and updating your contact information with your child's school office. We believe this resource will become a valuable tool for communicating school events with you.
To comply with wireless carrier requirements and protect against unsolicited text messages, you may receive an SMS message to the wireless cell phone number that the district has on file requesting that you opt-in to receive important information from the district via SMS text message. The message you receive will be similar to the following: "Cordell Public Schools alerts. Reply Y for aprx 5 msgs/mo. Txt HELP 4 info. Msg&data rates may apply. Visit schoolmessenger.com/tm". So that you can continue to receive these important messages from your student’s school district, we encourage you to reply with "Y" or "Yes" or "OPTIN" when you receive such a verification message.
To opt out of all text messages from SchoolMessenger, visithttp://www.schoolmessenger.com/txtmsg/ or reply with STOP to the opt-in message that you receive. If you opt-in, but decide to opt out later on, you may also reply "STOP" to any message or send "STOP" to 68453. The school district does not pay for text message charges that may be incurred by you for sending or receiving text messages. Check with your wireless carrier for possible charges.
In Case of Inclement Weather...
When conditions exist which may cause the delay or dismissal of school, local media will be notified. News concerning the dismissal of school will be broadcast over KWTV (Channel 9), KOCO (Channel 5), and KFOR (Channel 4), as well as 95.5, 96.5 and 99.3 FM radio stations. We will also post on our official school Facebook Page as well as use our SchoolMessenger alert system.
