Lakewood, NJ — May 31, 2010
Save the date! The School District of Philadelphia will host an end-of-year celebration to recognize the hard work of students who have made significant improvements to their reading scores. This event will give community members an opportunity to see first-hand how the school's partnership with Achieve3000 is resulting in double-digit reading gains.
Scheduled to join Principals Saliyah Cruz and Maureen Skalski are William K. Greenlee, Council member at Large City Council of Philadelphia and representatives from Achieve3000. Participants can learn more about the Achieve3000 reading program the students used both at the school and at home to improve their reading abilities.
"TeenBiz has been a powerful addition to our curriculum. It is the only intervention we have found that allows our teachers to continue to focus on the district's core curriculum while at the same time increasing students' literacy levels," says Saliyah Cruz, Principal West Philadelphia High School. "TeenBiz allows all students, regardless of deficiencies or reading gaps, to access the same content. This allows the ability to gain the content knowledge necessary to engage in meaningful class discussion and skill application."
