Join Dr. Peters to learn about a unique opportunity for your school to develop its use of acceleration to meet the needs of advanced learners.

The National Center for Research on Gifted Education (NCRGE) is seeking elementary schools (at least grades 2-5) interested in expanding their use of subject-specific and whole-grade acceleration as a way to meet the needs of advanced learners. Academic acceleration is the intervention for advanced learners that has shown the greatest effect on learning and achievement. As part of this research project, the school will receive a) professional learning around what acceleration actually is and how it can be used, b) a universal screening process to determine which students should be considered for acceleration, and c) resources and professional learning to help implement subject-specific and whole-grade acceleration decisions for qualifying students.
