MSD of Martinsville High Ability Program

The Metropolitan School District of Martinsville’s Enrichment Program is geared at providing special curricular challenges and activities for the high ability and high achieving students at all of the district’s schools. The program coordinators submitted a grant to the State of Indiana, and the State funds received from that grant help provide for the District’s Enrichment Program to function. The grant helps to fund materials and opportunities for high ability students. Each school’s Enrichment Program will be set up differently. Parent permission is required in order for each child to participate in the Enrichment Program; there is a Parent Permission Form that is distributed, completed by parent and returned to the child’s school. Through the Enrichment Program students are engaged by the activities, this one-two hour per week opportunity is not inclusive of the district’s curriculum that is in place at each school to challenge the high achieving and high ability students. Other services and programs are offered at each of the district’s schools.
