Cheney Elementary Highly Capable Program
The Cheney elementary highly capable program is a full inclusion model at the elementary level. This means students are serviced in their regular classrooms. A specialist acts as a consultant to the classroom teacher and aids in meeting the needs of identified learners. For each identified student, a student learning plan (SLP) is developed at the beginning of each school year and is revisited during each conference. The purpose of the SLP is to ensure identified children receive the services necessary to facilitate academic growth. At the middle and high school level, students are served through a variety of advanced course offerings.
In addition, enrichment opportunities are made available through the schools. Contact your child's school for more information about enrichment offerings.
