SPRING SCHOOL-BASED AAP SERVICES NEWSLETTER
ADVANCED ACADEMIC PROGRAMS (AAP)
SCREENING FOR SCHOOL-BASED (LEVEL II-III) SERVICES
Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) offers a continuum of advanced academic services for all students in grades K-8. Learning experiences are designed to develop higher-level thinking through enrichment, acceleration, and extensions of the Program of Studies (POS). Teachers, administrators, and advanced academic resource teachers (AARTs) work together to provide the following levels of school-based services in each elementary school. Information regarding Levels I, II, and III can be found http://www.fcps.edu/is/aap/continuum/es.shtml
Screening for school-based services can happen at any time during the school year but is done school-wide in spring to determine services for the next school year. Parents or guardians may initiate the screening for school-based (level II and III) services by submitting the AAP School-Based Services (Level II-III) Referral Form (available at www.fcps.edu/is/aap under “Forms”) to the AART at Woodburn Elementary prior to spring screening by April 30, 2016. Multiple criteria are used to screen students for all levels of AAP services. Parents or guardians who submit a referral will be notified by Woodburn Elementary of their student’s eligibility status by June 1, 2016.If a parent or guardian wishes to appeal an ineligible decision, they may submit an appeal with new data for consideration by the local school screening committee. This new information should be submitted to Margie Campbell, AART. If you have any questions, please contact me at email@example.com or 703-641-8258.
