Parents of remedial reading students in grades 9-12 received a little extra time prior to the high school open house on Sept. 19 to have their questions answered by Mrs. Chowaniec and Mr. Agugliaro, the NTHS reading teachers. This pre-open house parent session has been offered for several years so parents are able to review the course outline, reading materials that will be used during the year and have time to ask specific questions. Mrs. Chowaniec also explained how students are identified for the program through state testing, local testing, grades and many other factors that, together, give a clearer picture of each student.
Mr. Agugliaro covered details relating to reading materials to be used this year, and informed the parents that the Reading Lab vocabulary program will help students gain higher level words for high school, the SAT and college. He also made a point to parents that they should contact the school with concerns. He and Mrs. Chowaniec are very open to phone calls from parents and it is a good idea to follow the protocol of contacting the teacher first. He suggested that greater concerns should be referred to guidance and high school administration.
