Our goal this year is to ensure that every student attends school regularly, striving for five or fewer absences.

Showing up for school has a huge impact on a student’s academic success starting in kindergarten and continuing through high school. Even as children grow older and more independent, families play a key role in making sure students get to school safely every day and understand why attendance is so important for success in school and in life.

We realize some absences are unavoidable due to health problems or other circumstances. But, we also know that when students miss too much school--regardless of the reason--it can cause them to fall behind academically. Your child is less likely to succeed if he or she is chronically absent. Research shows:

  • Children chronically absent in kindergarten and 1st grade are much less likely to read at grade level by the end of 3rd grade.

  • By 6th grade, chronic absence is a proven early warning sign for students at risk for dropping out of school.

  • By 9th grade good attendance can predict graduation rates even better than 8th grade test scores.

Absences can add up quickly. A child is chronically absent if he or she misses just two days every month. Going to school regularly matters!

Gifted and Talented Referrals

Each year, schools in 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 Gifted/Talented educational services. These students usually perform at least two years above grade level in their strength area(s), and they require additional academic challenges in order to support their continued educational growth and progress. In addition, they usually demonstrate characteristics of unique creativity and high motivation in their strength areas.

Referrals are open through the month of September and will close on the last day of the month. Referrals after that date will be addressed on a case by case basis. Completing a referral guarantees a review of the student profile to determine if testing is recommended for the student. The process for identification requires a body of evidence and often takes place throughout the school year.

The process takes approximately 5-10 minutes to complete.

Referencia para Servicios de Dotados y Talentosos

Cada año, las escuelas del Distrito Escolar de St. Vrain Valley llevan a cabo un proceso para identificar a los estudiantes quienes demuestran capacidad excepcional o desempeño en una o más áreas académicas y que llenen los requisitos para recibir servicios para estudiantes Dotados/Talentosos. Estos estudiantes regularmente demuestran un desempeño de por lo menos dos años sobre su nivel de grado en las áreas de fortaleza y requieren un grado de dificultad académico superior para apoyar su crecimiento y progreso educativo. Además, estos estudiantes demuestran características de creatividad única y alta motivación en sus áreas de fortaleza.

El periodo para recibir referencias estará abierto durante el mes de septiembre. La fecha límite para referir a sus estudiantes es el último día del mes de septiembre. Las referencias recibidas después de la fecha límite serán consideradas conforme sean recibidas. Al remitir una referencia, se le garantiza un repaso del perfil del estudiante para determinar si es recomendable hacer pruebas adicionales. El proceso de identificación exige un conjunto de pruebas y con frecuencia se lleva a cabo a lo largo del año escolar.

El proceso toma aproximadamente 5 a 10 minutos para completar.
