“How the Third Grade Reading Guarantee (TGRG) affects your child and what does ‘retention’ really mean?” is the meeting and topic that kicks off the Olentangy Dyslexia Network’s lineup of monthly informational meetings for parents. This meeting will be held on Tuesday, September 23 at 6:30 p.m. at Heritage Elementary in Lewis Center. (Due to the expected crowd at this meeting there will not be a breakout session for kids.)
The September meeting will cover all that parents need to know on state reading test and answer some of the most common questions. In addition, State Representative Andrew Brenner will talk about important legislative work that involves our students.
“The reading test is complicated and parents with struggling readers need to know how it affects them,”stated Carole Dorn-Bell, president of ODN. “Parents should also know about all that our State Representative Andrew Brenner has done for our dyslexic students and for our cause.”
In addition to the September 23 meeting, ODN also announced meeting dates for the remainder of the school year. Those include: October 15, November 19, January 21, February 18, March 18, April 15 and May 20. All meetings begin at 6:30 p.m. at Heritage Elementary at 679 Lewis Center Road in Lewis Center.
All ODN meetings are for parents and their school-age children regardless of whether the diagnosis is reading difficulty or dyslexia. Often times the children breakout to a separate session.
