2002-2003 Reading Recovery Training Class

Class Dates, Topics, and Tentative BTG Schedule

*Since this is a graduate level course, if your school is closed, that doesn’t necessarily mean that our class is cancelled.  SUNY Brockport may close and our class may still be held.  A phone tree will be established and you will get a call if class is cancelled.

Class attendance is critical to becoming certified as a Reading Recovery teacher.  If you must miss a class due to illness or a family matter please call the Teacher Leader and make arrangements for a colleague to collect materials and take notes for you.  After two sessions are missed, special assignments will be given to make up for the missed sessions.  Tardiness will not be tolerated.
