  • We are thrilled to announce that at Shiloh Point we will be implementing an advanced content model in 5th grade.This is a data driven model using multiple measures to identify students who may need advanced curriculum in reading and/or math. Teachers will use data from CRCT, Norm Referenced tests, teacher checklists, Fountas and Pinnel reading inventories, and teacher created assessments. After assessing all students using multiple measures, advanced content will begin the week of August 19th. Student placement driven by performance in an advanced course may be reevaluated at the end of the 1st 9 weeks. Therefore a student who may be struggling in the advanced content may need to be reviewed or a student who is not in advanced content may need to be placed in that class. Any changes to the student’s schedule would be communicated with the parents first.
  • Advanced Content courses in 5th grade will take the place of Horizons services. All Horizons students will be served in at lease one advanced content block with one of the gifted program teachers. Horizons students may also received advanced content instruction from a gifted certified homeroom teacher. Additionally, high achieving students may be served in one or more advanced content block. These decisions will be driven by data. We believe that this new model will better meet students’ needs for advanced course work in reading and/or math. Also, students will have a smoother transition into 6th grade where advanced courses are available.
