Welcome to a New School Year!

The weather hasn’t been great but students are back in school and ready to learn!

School Leaders who are looking for an inspirational video regarding their impact on student reading achievement will LOVE this resource by the Learning Disabilities Association of Ontario.  The 13 minute video has an accompanying Viewers’ Guide and transcript.

The link to the video has been placed at the bottom of the Knowing and Using Reading Data web page.

Wish you a wonderful start to the New School Year,
