Scheduled a daily "study hall" to meet with assigned para. Students' lockers are strategically placed outside of her classroom so she is very accessible. There are 5-6 students per study hall to work on assignments, organization-locker & backpack, review online records weekly, tutor, mediate with teachers regarding ALL academic, disciplinary & emotional issues. If I notice any "holes" with on-line records, she researches the situation and works with the teacher to empower my son. She consults with me to construct a schedule that accommodates his desired "exploratory" classes, while keeping her study hall and required courses to stay on track. She seeks permission from teachers & moves his lunchtime-if necessary. She has attended an off-campus case mgmt meeting to report on his progress. Accordingly, made IEP change--ie. creating a space/plan for my son to diffuse or retreat in the event of a meltdown. Her guidance is provided in a very discreet and respectful manner that doesn't spotlight him in negative ways. The administration supports and values her. This fuels her spirit to do what is best in the interest of the student.

I go to this school currently but I feel that as a gifted student that I'm not challenged enough or really considered by the teachers to need help. If you want to be challenged and appreciated as the gifted student you are I would recommend private school or pre-IB at Robinson. This is what I'm doing for next year.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Kansas used the Kansas State Assessments (KSA) to test students in grades 3 though 8, 11 and 12 in reading and math; in grades 4, 7, 11 and 12 in science; and in grades 6, 8 and 12 in history-government. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Kansas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
