The Advanced Learning Plan (ALP)


Gifted liaisons in each building communicate with students and parents to create goals in strength areas.  Students may have a cognitive goal in a strength area or an interest goal. These goals help the students to do their best in each situation and focus on growing in an area that they enjoy. Each student will also have an affective goal. The students' effective goals are a way to help the students cope with their social emotional needs or their areas of need such as perfectionism  or collaboration.


The liaisons would like parent input.  They often send home surveys or requests for your input through the mail or email.  Please help them create the ALP with your input.  If you would like to have a conversation or conference about the ALP, please reach out to your child’s liaison.  Please sign the ALP when it comes home at Parent teacher conferences or from the liaisons.
