IGNITE: Including Gifted Needs in Today's Education
The IGNITE program is an enrichment based pull-out program for gifted learners who have met the eligibility criteria under the Anchorage School District's Plan of Service for Gifted Students. The program is available to students in grades 2-6, offering enrichment opportunities that incorporate universal themes with classroom learning in alignment with the Common Core State Standards and goals. IGNITE students are in their regular classrooms for core instruction and attend IGNITE classes for a 2-3 hour session per week at their home school.
Students can be referred in two ways. Classroom teachers who see your child showing traits of a gifted student can refer him or her to our IGNITE teacher, Mr. Doug Weimann. Parents can also refer their child by arranging a meeting with the classroom teacher and Mr. Weimann.
