There is a population of exceptionally high-performing students whose needs cannot be met without specialized programming and/or accommodations.
Granite School District’s Advanced Learner Program addresses the academic and emotional needs of students that have advanced content knowledge and skills, and/or show evidence of extraordinary learning ability in one or more specific disciplines.
The testing window for placement in Granite School District’s Advanced Learner Programs is as follows:
Monday, October 12 – Friday, December 11 for Grades 3-6
Thursday, January 7 – Friday, March 4 for Grades K-2
It is not necessary to have your child tested each year. However, children who want to be considered for placement in a third grade advanced learner cluster group must be tested in second grade. Students in grades K-5 who would like to be considered for the Advanced Learning Center Programs must participate this school year in the assessments.
In addition, sixth graders interested in taking Gifted & Talented classes in junior high must also be tested. It is not necessary for sixth graders registering for honors classes to be tested. If you would like your child to participate in the Advanced Learner testing, please notify your child’s school by Monday, October 12.
