Check Points and Progress Monitoring

Continually monitoring and identifying student needs and responding to those needs improve the likelihood that potential will be recognized and maximized.  Because gifts and talents are dynamic it is acknowledged that student needs may change over time or will be exhibited in different contexts, therefore, student’s needs will be formally reviewed at the end of 5th grade and 8th grade to determine where the student falls along the criteria for identification.  At that time programming adjustments will be made with input from the Enrichment Team, parents and classroom teachers.
