State Score Reports Coming Soon
Student score reports will begin release on Friday, September 20. Hard copies of the report will be sent home for parents and students. For help understanding how to read the report, we've provided a sample report for assistance that helps decipher the Lexile® and Quantile® measures.
The Lexile® is a measure of both reading ability and text complexity. This measure can be used to find books and materials that match a student’s reading ability and interests. The Quantile® measure can be used to find math activities that match a student’s ability and goals. Parents and teachers can use these websites to find books, resources, and activities that can improve students’ understanding of the content.
GHS Teacher Selected as Finalist for CT Book Award
Following the latest Cardinal Stadium Committee Meeting on August 22, 2019, meeting minutes and documentation are available.
KG+D Architects, Russ Davidson, presented updates on progress towards 60% design development of the “under the bleacher” field house, replacement visitor bleachers, and replacement lighting.
Discussion from the committee included safety around the “under the bleacher” field house, the land use and residential zoning process, ADA compliance, BET conditions, track size, heating options, and light replacement.
A discussion of solutions for Cardinal Stadium bleacher development will occur at a future Board of Education meeting, date to be determined.
Shoring-up of Cardinal Stadium Bleachers:
Last spring, during an assessment of the bleachers at Cardinal Stadium, it was determined that they were not up to current codes. Quick action was undertaken to explore possible solutions, and ultimately it was decided that the bleachers would be shored up to ensure safety for students, parents and the general public. With a generous gift from the Greenwich Athletic Foundation to complete this work, the bleachers at Cardinal Stadium were opened and ready for use last weekend.
