REACH programming offers enrichment, acceleration, or a combination of both in order to meet the needs of a gifted child. These services are provided to support the students strengths and interests as identified through psychological testing, interest surveys, and developmental growth of the child.
Programming can involve instruction in the following areas:
Enrichment involves the extension of learning that a student is receiving. This could include reading at a higher level on a similar topic, additional research for components for an assignment, or more difficult math problems for a given skill.
Acceleration involves moving a student beyond grade level for certain content. This could involve instruction at the next grade level, independent programming, or advanced project work.
Independent study involves instruction and exposure to content not taught in the regular classroom. This could involve a variety of independent or group programs, competitions, and contests.
