Edmonton Public Schools



At EABC's May 15 session (Update on Gifted Programming in Edmonton Public Schools), we learned that for the 2004-2005 school year, Edmonton Public Schools will be offering community school-based programming and two district centre programs for highly able students:

1) Challenge programming may be offered in community schools depending on the programming available in each school. Please contact the principal of your local community school for more information.

2) Challenge Program at District Centres - provides an enriched, challenging and appropriately paced educational program in a congregated setting for high-ability, high-achieving elementary students. (Sites: Lynnwood Elementary, Westbrook Elementary, and York Academic School.) Please contact the principal of your local community school for more information.

A Challenge Program brochure is available on the Edmonton Public Schools website at: http://www.epsb.ca/datafiles/ChallengeProgramBrochure.pdf

3) Extensions Program - a new district site-based program which supports elementary and junior high students with extremely high intellectual ability. Eligible students require substantially different educational programs and individual accommodations in order to achieve and prosper. (Site: to be determined.)

An Extensions Program brochure is available on the Edmonton Public Schools website at: http://www.epsb.ca/datafiles/ExtProgramWebBrochure.pdf

MAY 28, 2004 IS THE DEADLINE FOR EXTENSIONS PROGRAM ELIGIBILITY REQUESTS.

In order to put resources in place for the Extensions Program, the Edmonton Public School Board needs to know by May 28, 2004 how many students will be eligible for this new Extensions program. If you think your child would benefit from this program, please contact the principal of your local community school right away. If you know of other families who may be interested, please let them know about this program and especially about the May 28 deadline.
