Project Arrow and Math Acceleration Testing Notification
Grades 2 through 5
District 204 offers a variety of academic programming to meet the needs of our students. Although assessment occurs throughout the school year for all students, some programs require additional information gathering in order to determine appropriate placement. The Identification Timeline, located on the District website is under the Instruction link. It provides general information regarding identification for Academically Talented Project Arrow Gifted Program and the Accelerated Mathematics Program. Letters with specific testing details will be sent from schools to parents of students for whom further evaluation is recommended. Additional information about either of these programs can be found on the District website or by contacting your child’s classroom teacher or school’s Student Services Coordinator.
