MPS Advanced Learner Program and Self-Advocacy: How to get your child the help they need
Join us for the first MPLS chapter meeting of the 2016-17 school year.
Saturday, September 24, 9:30-10:30 a.m.
Sumner Library, 611 Van White Memorial Blvd, Minneapolis, MN 55411
If you have a child in MPS who has been identified as an Advanced Learner, please join to learn more about the program, teacher training, and who to contact in your community school for more information
Carol Muleg, President of Minnesota Council of the Gifted and Talented and SENG facilitator, will be joining us to discuss strategies for self-advocacy. It is within this context of self-advocacy that we will also be discussing the MPS Talent Development and Advanced Learner program.
Theresa Campbell, middle grade talent development and academic district program facilitator, and Alyssa Polack, elementary grade talent development and academic district program facilitator, from the MPS Talent Development and Advanced Learner Department will also be joining us. Theresa and Alyssa will describe the program, the identification process, service levels, teacher training, and who to contact to see how the program is implemented in your community school. If you have questions about the program, about how it is structured, and who oversees it in your community school, please join us.
Childcare will not be provided at this event, but kids are welcome. I’ll have games, and drawing materials, and they can always browse the library stacks upstairs. The room is quite large.
