On February 16th parents received a summary of their child's most recent DORA (Diagnostic Online Reading Assessment) results. This information was sent home in children’s backpacks.
To help parents have a better understanding of this test, there was a Parent Information Meeting on DORA that was held on Monday, February 7, at 7:00PM at the Francis Wyman Elementary School auditorium. This meeting was for parents from all four elementary schools. Dr. Conti and the four elementary school principals shared information about the test to help parents have a better understanding of this assessment.
I also hosted a morning Parent Information Meeting on Thursday, February 10, at 9:00 AM at the Pine Glen Elementary School for Pine Glen parents who were not able attend the Monday evening meeting. I shared the same information that was presented on the 7th. I will be sharing the presentation again on March 10, from 2:00-2:30 in the cafeteria at the Pine Glen Elementary School for Pine Glen parents.
I will be presenting the Power Point that was shown at the two previous presentations. It is also available to be viewed on my Blog. It was posted on Wednesday February 9, 2011 and is titled DORA Frequently Asked Questions.
