5 Advanced Academics Program Philosophy La Feria ISD is committed to the philosophy that all children can learn and is dedicated to meeting the needs of all its students through an educational program of quality, equity and accountability, in compliance with all federal, state and local requirements. Our District s motto is EXPECT ACHIEVE EXCEL. La Feria ISD also recognizes that children learn in different ways, at various rates, and at different levels of mastery and acknowledges that these children are found in all races, ethnic origins and in all socioeconomic levels. La Feria ISD accepts the challenge to find and identify those children who require a more challenging, stimulating, and rigorous curriculum beyond that which is available in the regular school program and to provide them with the opportunity within the Advanced Academics Program to develop to the fullest of their intellectual ability. Goals To develop student behaviors and skills necessary for becoming productive citizens and lifelong learners who interact effectively with peers, community, and society. To develop critical, creative, and evaluative thinking processes that lead students to produce advanced level products. To develop self-directed learners with appreciation for their own abilities as well as those of others. To develop an array of learning opportunities in the four core academic areas and when possible out-of-school options relevant to the student s area of strength. To develop a challenging curriculum of differentiated instruction with depth and complexity. To develop a program that involves the community in the education of gifted students. To develop a flexible program allowing students to learn at the pace and level appropriate for their abilities and skills. 5

6 District Coordinator The Advanced Academics Coordinator for LFISD is responsible for implementing philosophy, program goals, and placement criteria for LFISD. The Advanced Academics Coordinator is responsible for developing and monitoring the gifted and talented services and assisting principals, campus coordinators and teachers in implementing the program, and conducting program evaluations to remain in compliance with state and local guidelines. The Advanced Academic Coordinator does not have placement authority for students. Campus Selection Committees and Appeal Committees have authority for making placement decisions regarding the gifted and talented program. Advanced Placement Program La Feria I. S. D. participates in the College Board s National Advanced Placement (AP) program. The College Board s AP Program enables students to pursue college-level studies while still in high school. Many AP courses are offered at La Feria High School and students who enroll and complete an AP course are encouraged to take the AP examination in May. Based on their performance, students can earn credit, advanced placement, or both, for college. Most United States colleges and universities, and colleges and universities in 21 countries, have an AP policy granting incoming students credits, advanced placement, or both, for qualifying AP examination grades. La Feria Independent School District also offers Pre-Advanced Placement (PAP) courses at W. B. Green Junior High in the four content areas of English, math, science, and social studies and Pre-Advanced Placement (PAP) 6 th grade science at Noemi Dominguez Elementary. Pre- AP courses enable students to build skills and understanding they need for success in AP courses. Advantages of the Advanced Placement Program AP prepares students to succeed in college. Students save no college tuition. Graduate early from college. The credits students earn for their AP achievements enable many students to pursue a double major, to study abroad, or to undertake a combined bachelor s and master s program. Students who participate in AP are ultimately given the responsibility to reason, analyze, and understand for themselves. 6

7 Advanced Placement Exam Each May, students who take AP courses have the opportunity to take the equivalent AP exam for their subject area(s). The AP exam grade is a weighted combination of the student s score on the multiple-choice section and on the free-response section. The final grade is reported on a 5- point scale. Students who earn AP exam grades of 3 or above are generally considered to be qualified to receive college credit and/or placement into advanced courses; however, each college or university determines the awarding of credit and placement and it is the student s responsibility to check individual institutions regarding policies.

The student, the parent(s), the counselor and the teacher will have a meeting. The teacher will show in writing areas of deficiencies. All people attending the conference may give input into ways the deficiencies can be improved. At the conclusion of the conference, the student and his/her parent(s) will be informed, in writing, of needed improvements in the student s performance or products if he/she wishes to remain in the program. 4. If, following the formal conference, the student does not show a satisfactory improvement in the deficient areas, the teacher will notify the principal. The principal will call a meeting of the Gifted & Talented Selection Committee and make a final decision regarding exiting of the student from the gifted & talented program. This decision will be based on the overall educational performance of the student. Transfer Procedures Students who transfer into La Feria ISD identified as gifted/talented by a previous Texas public school or out of state school will be placed in the gifted/talented program based on a conditional acceptance until supporting documentation showing previous gifted/talented placement has been received. Student s records shall be reviewed by the gifted/talented selection committee to determine if placement in the District s program for gifted/talented is appropriate for the student. The campus Gifted & Talented Selection Committee shall make its determination within six weeks (30 days) of the student s enrollment in the district and shall base its decision on the transferred records or new assessment. 19

20 Policy related to transfer students ensures that students are properly assessed and appropriately placed within six weeks (30 days) of enrollment in the district.
