These classes embrace curriculum and instruction that:
We will use a variety of data sources to place students into advanced classes. We will look at TCAP and PARCC scores; we are looking for those students who score in the upper proficient to advanced range. We will also look at grades, SRI scores, and Galileo testing. Gifted and Talented identification will also be used to determine eligibility for placement into advanced classes.
