• We begin at K-2 with a flexible model as students begin to grow and learn. At K-2 our Instructional Coaches collaborate with staff to assist them in providing resources, instructional practices, passion projects and strategies to work with identified students. At this age student needs vary. Therefore, through flexible groups, differentiation, workshop and guided reading and math groupings, students will be challenged with just the right learning so that students are not “waiting to learn.” Here are some activities for students and staff:

• At the 3-4th grade level, our instructional coach and TAG teacher will meet the needs of students in a variety of ways through support with the classroom teacher to provide strategies to meet the needs of our students, so once again our students are not waiting to learn. Our TAG teacher will also meet with students who need extension beyond the regular curriculum in a core plus more model. Here are some services that are provided:

• Pull out math and reading, pull out through the extended learning program (ELP- students will be identified at third grade for this services as needed), support, inquiry, making meaning extensions, subject acceleration in math, telescoping (more grade levels in academic year), constant pre-assessing and compacting, and RADAR.

• As students enter the middle school, course selections begin to meet the majority of our students identified for enrichments, or TAG services. There are course selections for math, plus our TAG teacher will pull out students as needed to dive deeper into the concepts to meet student needs. Some services provided in 5th and 6th grade are: pull out math and reading with TAG teacher, pull out ELP with TAG teacher, push in math with TAG teacher and generalist, subject acceleration, and whole grade acceleration as needed.
