Identification and Clusters
During the month of September all students will be considered for possible entrance into the academically
gifted and talented pull-out program for grades 2-8.
In the elementary schools, the identified population in grades 2-5 is addressed through a pull-out program that engages students in investigative opportunities. These activities seek to accommodate individual interests and learning styles, and challenge students' cognitive abilities above and beyond the regular curriculum.
In the middle schools, the needs of the identified population in grades 6-8 are met through a small group
pull-out program with instruction and mentorships that address the variety of interests and develop cognitive and affective processes.
To be considered for the academically gifted pull-out program for grades 2-5, students must meet certain criteria. These include district/state standardized tests, academic achievement as well as other multiple criteria.
Parental approval is required before students can be tested, and final selection is based on examination of multiple criteria and committee recommendation.
Students will be asked to re-qualify for the middle school pull-out program. The reevaluation matrix includes state standardized test scores, academic achievement as well as other multiple criteria.
