Families invited to gifted/advanced program evaluation webinar on January 17

CCSD 89 is working with Northwestern University's Center for Talent Development to complete an evaluation of gifted and advanced programming. The current elementary program is called “Challenge” and is available for qualifying second- to fifth-grade grade students in language arts and humanities as well as science, technology, engineering, and math. In middle school, students may qualify for advanced literacy, math, or science. 

The purpose of the evaluation is to help develop a continuous improvement plan for the district's gifted/advanced program. The district will be hosting an informational webinar with Dr. Susan Corwith, Northwestern's director of the Center for Talent Development, at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, January 17, to discuss the process and timeline for family input.
