SAVE THE DATE - January 28th!
The second round of ELA Extended Day will begin Wednesday, January 28, 2015.
Who's eligible to stay?
Students will be selected based on the following criteria:
- Failed 2nd 9 Week District Reading Assessment (cumulative assessment)
- Scored below 72 for semester average
** I will be providing a list of your students that meet the above listed criteria, and will meet with you regarding any questions or concerns.
I understand many of you have had parents ask about their child staying for Extended Day. A letter will be sent home to parents explaining the criteria for math, reading, and science tutorials.
