ISD 834 Central Services Bldg, 1875 South Greenley St, Stillwater, MN

We bring you a two-part meeting, each featuring a special angle on differentiated learning for gifted students.

Part I — We’ve invited Eric Anderson, ISD 834 Coordinator of Equity and Integration, to talk with St Croix Valley Gifted families about what the Culturally Responsive Classroom looks like in action, how it enables new avenues of differentiation for gifted learners, and what role it plays in shaping the future of Stillwater schools.

Part II — LaRae Paulson, Chapter Vice President, provides an update about parent advocacy conversations with Stillwater ISD 834 leadership on behalf of gifted learners in Junior High. Part II will have particular appeal to parents of gifted learners who currently are enrolled in Junior High -or- who will enter Junior High in the coming few years.
