Gifted Programming @ Sage Canyon
Students who are identified as being gifted in Reading, Writing and/or Math are identified using a body of evidence that is collected with the input of students, parents, and teachers.  A child that is identified as being gifted is then placed on an Advanced Learning Plan (ALP).  The ALP is a document that records the goals the student will be working towards and is monitored by the classroom teacher throughout the school year.  All ALPs are reviewed annually with the student and parents.  Students who have an ALP have their needs met primarily in the classroom here at Sage Canyon because our PBL model is ideal for GT students.  Teachers are able to differentiate instruction for these students and guide them to a deeper understanding of the curriculum. Some students may benefit from a pull out program as well.
