Spring 2022 PVE Family Input Form - Now Due Friday, May 27th

Dear Current (and Future) PVE Families,


Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback regarding your child's learning experience this year, along with input as we consider planning for next year. The input you provide in this survey serves two purposes. First, it provides us the opportunity to reflect on our strengths and areas to improve as a building. We readily admit that we, as a staff, must continually reflect and be open to feedback in order for improvement to become a reality. Secondly, the input you provide supports our planning efforts as we strive to create the optimal classroom placement for each student for the 2022-2023 school year.


Please understand that this survey serves as the primary and most effective way for parents to communicate with administration their thoughts about next year's class placement. Please refrain from requesting a specific teacher, and instead focus on the learning style, classroom supports, and interests that most benefit your child. Please complete this form by Friday, May 27th so we may have the opportunity to adequately review your input before the end of the school year.


Your partner in education,
Stacy - PVE Principal

Spring Identification

The Indiana Department of Education requires school districts to identify gifted students and provide them with appropriately differentiated curriculum and instruction. In ZCS, we consider ability and achievement data of all students each spring to identify any who may need curriculum and/or instruction. This spring our team of teachers, licensed in gifted education, will look at all data to make sure that we understand the needs of each student.


Our school district is committed to continuous progress for all students, regardless of designation. Accelerated content is common in our classrooms as are heightened expectations, instructional levels and high-achieving peers. Instructional methods regularly group and regroup students with differentiated materials and goals. Whether or not a child is identified as needing advanced curriculum, our teachers are committed to regular assessment of skills and knowledge and matching experiences to challenge each child and help him or her make maximum academic growth. We are proud to be a high-performing school district with high expectations for all students.


  • For students currently in grades K-3: Programming at the elementary level is based on student need for acceleration and enrichment within a cluster group in a general education classroom and not on labels. All student data is reviewed each year to look for several indicators that a child needs advanced instruction in order to grow academically. Our identification team looks at achievement, ability and teacher observational data. Since these vary from year to year with young students, we re-look at every student each spring. Parents will be notified by June 1 if their child has been recommended for more advanced curriculum. If your child was not identified through our extensive process, parents/guardians may appeal the decision. Parents/guardians can complete the appeal process by June 15. Forms are located on the Academics tab of our website under “Advanced Curriculum”: https://4.files.edl.io/039c/01/28/20/182123-3d4a9f45-de63-4549-95a9-0341f67290eb.pdf


Note: If your child is currently identified as needing more advanced curriculum in grades 1-4, you will not receive an email because this placement will continue for the next school year.


  • For students currently in grade 4: All students are considered and more formally identified for high ability each year throughout middle school where they are placed in a class with high ability curriculum. Our identification team considers either achievement (NWEA) or ability (CogAT/OLSAT) when making decisions. Parents will be notified by June 1 if their child has been recommended for differentiation based on the need for accelerated instruction and curriculum. If your child was not identified through our extensive process, parents may appeal the decision. Parents can complete the appeal process by June 15. Forms are located on the Academics tab of our website under “Advanced Curriculum”: https://4.files.edl.io/9ed3/07/24/19/163425-9b8daab0-04e6-4efb-acd8-f68c3aec4318.pdf
