OCT GT LEAD

LEARNING EXPERIENCES FOR ACADEMIC DISCOVERIES

STAY CONNECTED

Dear Parents,


As we all are adjusting to our new normal, I just wanted to let you know that I have emailed parents in each grade level (K-5) to touch base through flipgrid and to begin our new online GT LEAD classes.


K-2nd Grades are using Seesaw as a GT Classroom.

3rd - 5th Grades are using Google Classroom as a GT Classroom.


Another way that GT Specialists are trying meet students' needs is through the Extension and Enrichment link that is at the bottom of your Weekly Learning Plan that you receive each Monday from the district/teachers. These are optional, extra challenges created by districtwide GT Specialists for ANY child who completes his/her main coursework and is wanting a challenge. These will be completed and turned in to the homeroom teacher.

UPDATE: GT TESTING GRADES 1-4

Elementary GT LEAD Parent Notification Update
Due to our school closure, the notification regarding elementary GT placement has been delayed from April 1, 2020 to April 24th, 2020. Parents of elementary students will receive an email regarding the campus placement committee's decision from the campus GT Specialist on April 24, 2020. Notifications for ASPIRE Academy will be emailed on April 27th.

UPDATE: MATH TELESCOPING TESTING


Exams for Acceleration and Credit By Exam Updates

Due to COVID-19 restrictions:

The Math Telescoping Acceleration Assessments will not be given on April 18th, 2020 as originally planned. The new date is tentatively set for May 16th, 2020. Families will not need to re-register for the replacement date. That registration deadline for this first administration has already passed; however, a second date is still planned for June. Please visit the website for updates.
