Yough to offer SAT prep class

| Saturday, Dec. 11, 2010

Yough High School will offer an SAT prep class outside of regular school hours for Yough students and may open it to other districts in the fall.

The Yough school board this week gave the administration the go-ahead to reinstate the after-school SAT prep program.

Teachers Jeffrey Schmook and Susan Rogge advised the board that the sessions, likely to be offered on Saturdays, would be very valuable and well attended. Rogge said that most students in Advanced Placement courses are unable to fit SAT prep into their schedules.

High School Principal Earl Thompson said the cost of the program to the district is estimated at about $3,100 per session, with three sessions per year. The administration will evaluate whether the program can be offered to students of other districts at a price.

The program is expected to be in place for the March SAT.

In other business, the board accepted the resignations of varsity assistant coaches Lou Zadecky, lacrosse; Jason Stewart, football; and Ben Suchko, boys soccer.

After the board reorganization, Ruth Bisko remains as president and Ken Bach remains vice president.
