All students will be screened using the Naglieri Non-Verbal Abilities Test in second grade. This assessment is a culturally neutral test of student skills and abilities regardless of student primary language.
Additionally, those students identified by teachers or parents as potentially highly-able will also be assessed using this screening tool.
Students determined to be normed in the top 10% of their age bracket nationally will be evaluated based on a body of evidence provided by teachers and parents to determine the need for advanced learning interventions.
Students identified as Gifted will meet with the School Intervention Team to establish an Advanced Learning Plan (ALP) that will define the opportunities and expectations for the student. Academy 360 will comply with all Federal, State and District regulations for the administration of ALPs.
