Every year there are many questions that both parents and students have with regard to the process and steps needed to continue in the Gifted Program for Grade 9. I have drafted a checklist in the form of a letter for your information. The first step of the process is the Annual IPRC Review meeting. That meeting has been scheduled for students currently placed in the grade 8 gifted classes at St. Andrew’s JHS for Tuesday, December 6th, 2016. (Please note that this date is set by the board and cannot be changed.) This information was sent home with students (on green coloured paper) with a due date of return by today. I have received very few.
I use this information to set up the agenda for the meeting. Please see the attached document, fill out the second page and send it in with your child on Monday, if you haven’t done so already. (I apologize; I noticed after the fact that in making revisions to the letter from past years I inadvertently took out the spot for the student’s name. If you filled out the green form and sent it back, without clearly printing your child’s name on the form, I humbly ask if you could print off the attachment and send it in, again.)
Thank you, in advance, for your assistance with getting this process underway.
