Reading Recovery -- 1st Grade

Here is another plug for the links in the far right column of this screen. Education Week is a weekly newspaper that focuses on educational issues across the country.

Often there are articles in this publication that relate directly to issues that are occurring in our region or in our schools. Today, there is an article on Reading Recovery. This is a program that we use with our first grade students who struggle with reading.

The article references the positive endorsement that the program received from the U.S. Department of Education’s What Works Clearinghouse.

This link should take you directly to the article.

    Dear Mr. Jones,
    The board of education in a township in Ohio is in the process of hiring a new superintendent. Before that new superintendent comes on board, the board of education is faced with giving contracts to several of its administrators, all of whom have performed incredibly well. If it were up to you as the new superintendent coming in, would you want the board to grant these administrators 1-year, 2-year or 3-year contracts? I would really appreciate any help with this question. I am a member of the board of education and am struggling with what the right thing to do is and am trying to reach out to as many superintendents as possible. Thank you. My e-mail is
