High Ability Mission....
The mission of Anderson Community School Corporation is to provide for the maximum development of skills, abilities and knowledge for students who exhibit or have the potential for high ability from all cultural, linguistic and ethnic backgrounds in an atmosphere that recognizes their unique individual intellectual, social and emotional needs.
This year, according to State Guidelines, all students in Kindergarten, Grade 2, and Grade 5, will be tested for High Ability.
Teachers will start identifying High Ability students in Grades 1, 3, and 4, for the 2020-2021 school year in February.
This year, the NWEA will be part of the pre-screening for High Ability referrals for all students. Those students selected from the NWEA pre-screen and other elements will begin High Ability testing in March. Information will be compiled and presented to the committee for further review. We anticipate results from the High Ability testing to be sent out to parents, by the first of April.
Teacher and Parent referrals for students in Grades 1, 3, and 4, are due by March 1, 2021. These referrals must include the teacher checklist and parent checklist. Submit all completed packets to the building data coach on or before March 1, 2021. Required forms are attached above.
Thank you for your assistance in identifying these students.
