RE: Texas elementary teachers/remediation

Our TAAS coordinator and aids taught the kids pulled from PE. The in
school remediation continued until the week of the test, while the after
school tutoring was about a month and 1/2 before the test. The music
teacher taught for any teacher who needed a sub.

Our Art and music teachers are lucky; our principal is a musician and
values art. She considers them a full members of the school team. She
knows that they help our children learn and score high on the TAAS/TAKS.

sounds to me like you did the remediation in the Fall during the day,
and the
remediation in the Spring after school. Am I understanding this

have looked at what we do in art, and you and I both know that the
math, science, etc are incorporated, but my administration doesn't get
Did the art teacher who taught extended day teach reading and math
remediation? Thanks again, Kimberly, for your reply.
