Tier 2 GT Core+
GT2/GT Core+ services include a variety of support options for identified students. The first support is that the student will be intentionally grouped with other identified students so the teacher can more effectively provide the type of instructional experience best suited for GT thinkers. Clustering and teacher support means students will have their instructional needs addressed during all subjects each day instead of the current 10-20% which is all we are able to provide now. Also, the classroom teacher will be able to utilize grouping strategies that reduce the range of abilities and achievement levels which results in appropriate instructional levels and pacing. Through increased collaboration, the Core Connections will take on a whole new level of extension learning and will allow for enhanced learning experiences for the four core areas of instruction.

Symposium- Continuing the Legacy of REACH
Symposium is a new expansion for our services that I believe makes us an exemplary and destination district. We are committed to ensuring the social-emotional needs of our students are met. When our students are often misunderstood and contrary to misconceptions, they can struggle in school and socially.
Symposium for the elementary students will be a way to continue the legacy of REACH for one day each semester by bringing the students to a central location like the PDC gym for an intensive day of advanced learning and connecting with their peers from other schools. This will be a great way to honor the past while embracing the future.
In secondary, we have committed to having Advanced Learning Specialists provide opportunities on each secondary campus each semester to allow our students to come together around a topic they need addressed such as multipotentiality (having potential in multiple areas leading to difficulty in selecting a college focus) or stress reduction strategies. We want to extend opportunities for these students AND families to schedule time with Jasmine and/or Joe, too. Our parents want to do the best they can for their children but sometimes they don’t know how.
While symposium is one day a semester, the connections students make during these experiences can lead to students collaborating all year with technology. The activities will be strategically designed to foster just such connections.
