Elementary Pullout

Students in Grades 2-4 who are identified superior cognitive (IQ) AND identified with a specific academic ability (reading and/or math) are served in a multi-age self contained classroom (140-160 minutes per day).   Qualifying students are pulled out for core instruction in both reading and mathematics.  They are transported (if necessary) to one of our two locations (T.C. Knapp Elementary or Whipple Heights Elementary) and receive instruction by a Gifted Intervention Specialist (GIS).

Service Criteria:
Below is the criteria used to add new students as of Spring 2017.  We have three options for qualifying for our Elementary Pullout program.
We have a continued practice of examining this criteria annually to ensure the maximum number of appropriate students is served through this model.

Option #1 - Superior Cognitive Identification and Specific Academic Identification (Reading, Math or Both)
Option #2 - Dual Specific Academic Identifications (Reading and Math) and Superior Cognitive Score 119+
Option #3 - Single Specific Academic Identification (Reading or Math) and Other Academic Area 90+ and Superior Cognitive Score 120+

Our Gifted Intervention Specialists (GISs) are Mrs. Stacy Adams (Genoa, Knapp, Lohr) & Mrs. Amy Hixenbaugh (Watson, Whipple Heights).
