In accordance with Ohio Department of Education Administrative Code 3301-35-06, Talawanda Schools provide the opportunity highly advanced students to be assessed to see if acceleration is an appropriate placement for students.
Whole-Grade Acceleration: The practice of assigning a student to a higher grade level than is typical given the student’s age on a full-time basis for the purpose of providing access to appropriately challenging learning opportunities.
Subject Acceleration: The practice of assigning a student to a higher grade level in a specific subject than is typical given the student’s age. This placement is typically done on a subject by subject basis.
Feel free to contact the gifted coordinator with your questions regarding acceleration.
