It has been our intention to return to some form of in-person learning as soon as it was determined by our health departments that it is both safer and feasible to do so. On September 21, during our virtual town hall with county health department officials, we reviewed the current coronavirus data for our community. To this end, our county health agency partners have made the recommendation that it is now appropriate for us to return to a hybrid learning model. Click here to watch the virtual town hall discussion about the data guiding our decisions and current levels in our community. Beginning Monday, October 5, we will be implementing a hybrid in-person learning schedule for all students who are not currently enrolled in the LaunchED program. LaunchED student’s schedules will not be impacted by this change.
Cómo usted sabe, nuestra intención ha sido volver a alguna forma de aprendizaje en persona tan pronto cómo nuestros departamentos de salud determinen que es más seguro y factible hacerlo. Anoche, durante nuestra junta virtual con los funcionarios del departamento de salud del condado, revisamos los datos actuales del coronavirus para nuestra comunidad. Con esto, nuestros asociados de las agencias de salud pública del condado han recomendado que ahora es apropiado que regresemos a un modelo de aprendizaje híbrido. Haga clic aquí para ver la discusión de la junta virtual sobre los datos que guían nuestras decisiones y los niveles actuales en nuestra comunidad. Comenzando el lunes 5 de octubre, estaremos implementando un programa de aprendizaje híbrido en persona para todos los estudiantes que no estén inscritos actualmente en el programa LaunchED. Los horarios de estudiantes LaunchED no serán impactados por este cambio.
Gifted education includes a range and variety of services to address student needs, and may be delivered within the student's regular classroom, in advanced programs, and in special classes. Programming is linked to identified student strengths, with options and strategies matched to a student's identified academic and affective needs.
The actual delivery of services for gifted/talented students varies depending on student needs and building resources. Ideally, each school strives to provide a continuum of services, including enrichment that is accessible and appropriate for all interested students, advanced courses that are ideally suited for identified students, and grade level acceleration, mentoring and counseling for students with a very high level of need.
Each year, schools in the St. Vrain Valley School district complete a process to identify students who demonstrate exceptional ability or performance in one or more academic areas and may, therefore, qualify for Gifte/Talented educational services. These students usually perform at least two years above grade level in their strength area(s) and require additional academic challenges in order to support thier continued educational growth and progress. In addition, they usually demonstrate characteristics of unique creativity and high motivation in their strength areas.
The search of gifted/talented students begins with an opportunity for parents and/or teachers to refer students for review. Once referrals are received, a team of educators evaluate student state testing data, standardized test scores, rating scaleds and other school data to determine which assessments are needed in order to build the body of evidence and meet Board of Education approved criteria for identification.
If you believe that your child is demonstrating cognitive skills or academic/performance achievement above grade level peers, please pick up a nomination form from the school office or download the form here (Spanish version here) and contanct one of CRMS's Gifted/Talented site leaders, Kristie Mitchell or Mike Stover.
