Link to Subject or Whole-grade Acceleration Referral Form

Acceleration is a special service for exceptional students. Schools utilize this practice when a child's academic needs are too advanced to be met in the regular classroom or other available programs. 

Acceleration testing includes a cognitive assessment and subject tests two grade levels above the child’s current grade level. This should only be recommended if students are significantly advanced and acceleration is a serious consideration.

An acceleration review committee will convene to recommend the most appropriate placement for the referred student.

The parent permission for assessment form must be signed and returned to the Gifted & Talented Department at least 60 days before the start of the term during which potential acceleration might begin.
