Concussions: What To Look For

Posted by admin in young children , Wellesley Test Prep , Wayland Test Prep , Sudbury Tutor , sports , Rivers School Test Prep , Newton Tutoring , Needham Tutoring , Natick Tutor , middle school , kids , ISEE Tutor Needham , injuries , illness , high school , head lice , elementary school , Dover Tutor , concussions , Brookline Test Prep , brain

Concussions are caused by a bump to the head.  Even a mild bump to the head can be serious.  Signs of concussions can show up right after the injury or may not appear until days or weeks later.  If your child reports the symptoms of a concussion, seek medical attention right away.

The following are concussion signs you should look for if your child suffers a blow to the head during a sports activity:

  • Appears dazed or stunned
  • Is confused about their assignment or position
  • Forgets an instruction
  • Is unaware of the game, score, or opponent
  • Moves clumsily
  • Answers questions slowly
  • Loses consciousness (even briefly)
  • Shows behavior or personality changes
  • Can not recall events prior to the bump
  • Can not recall events after the bump

PARCC Test Score Results

Posted by admin in Weston Test Prep , Wellesley Test Prep , Wayland Test Prep , Sudbury Tutor , students , standardized tests , Rivers School Tutoring , PARCC , Newton Test Prep , Natick Tutoring , Massachusetts , MA , ISEE Tutor Wayland , Dover Test Prep , Brookline Test Prep , America

After students complete the new PARCC test trial run in the spring of 2014, the test results will not be released to students or parents.  In fact the results will not count toward state or federal school district grades.  Apparently the test results will only be used by state officials when they vote in the fall of 2015 on whether to adopt the new PARCC tests permanently. 

Tune in tomorrow to find out how the tests will be given out.

Lincoln-Sudbury Superintendent Fiasco

Posted by admin in tax , Sudbury Tutoring , Sudbury Tutor , Sudbury Test Prep , money , Massachusetts , MA , ISEE Tutor Sudbury , controversy

The Lincoln-Sudbury Regional School District decided that their Superintendent earning $157,000 per year was underpaid.  They decided to extend her contract through the 2014-2015 academic year for a whopping $170,000 per year.  This is an 8.3% raise!  Did you get as big of a raise this year?  Or were you just happy to keep your job?  What do you think about towns raising your property taxes so school districts can give away taxpayer funds like this?
