  • Siena to Honor Senator Craig Zucker and Delegate Eric Luedtke, D-Montgomery District 14

    In recognition of their work and support in the passing of the Ready to Read Screening & Interventions Bill.  As October is Dyslexia Awareness Month, Siena annually honors local and national leaders with the Siena Cypress Leadership Award for their significant contributions to the education of students who learn differently.

    The Ready to Read Screening and Interventions bill became Maryland law and requires all Kindergarten students to be screened for reading difficulties including dyslexia. The bill took effect on July 1, 2019, and school districts are required to have screening and interventions at the ready by the 20-21 school year.
