Hello,

I teach four sections of Literacy Support, primarily for 9th graders.  This course is dedicated to helping students reach (or exceed) grade level in their all-important reading and writing skills as they prepare for the opportunities and demands that lie ahead.  Week by week descriptions of class work are found in students' Canvas modules.  Canvas can be accessed via the RSD Login Portal which can be clicked on at the Renton Start Page or at the Lindbergh website.

I also teach one section for seniors, Collection of Evidence (COE).  This course is designed to help prepare students to pass the ELA Smarter Balance Test which is one the standard requirements for high school graduation.  The class is designed, as well, to help prepare students for the reading and writing demands that will be encountered in post-high school opportunities including community college.

Re-test opportunities for the ELA Smarter Balance test will be given twice during the academic year. The first Smarter Balance re-take test is scheduled to begin on Oct. 30.  The second ELA Smarter Balance re-take opportunity will begin around late April.  

Please feel free to contact me on my classroom phone: 425-204-3279.  Or you can email me at steven.thomas@rentonschools.us.
