    Acceleration

    The deadline for applications is March 31 for consideration of acceleration for the following school year.

    Grade acceleration is the practice of assigning a student to a higher grade level than is typical, given the student's age, for the purpose of providing access to appropriately challenging learning opportunities in all subject areas. Grade acceleration applies to 2nd-8th Grade.

    Single subject acceleration is the practice of assigning a student to a higher subject level than is typical, given the student’s age, for the purpose of providing access to appropriately challenging learning opportunities in one or more subject areas.  It may be accomplished by either:  a) physically moving the student to a higher level class for instruction; or b) using higher level curricular or study materials in the student’s current classroom. Single subject acceleration applies to 3rd-8th Grade.
