Department Information

Advanced Learning Department

We are deeply committed to furthering Advanced Learning services across the district for grades K-8. Over the next six years, the program will become more accessible and equitable by offering services at neighborhood schools.


The program is not going away, it’s getting better.

It will be more inclusive, equitable, culturally sensitive, and address the whole child. Students who have been historically excluded will now have the same opportunities for services as every other student, and get the support and enrichment they need to grow.

New types of instruction will be flexible enough to provide advanced lessons where appropriate and, at the same time, address that same student’s need for grade level help in other areas. 

Every student currently enrolled in a highly capable cohort is continuing on their existing path.


Vision of Success

When our new Advanced Learning model is implemented across the district in local neighborhood schools, every student — particularly Black, Brown, and Indigenous students who have been traditionally furthest from educational justice — will have access to the learning services that meet their needs, so they can reach their full potential.

Teachers will have the resources and support they need to provide these services, and the school community will enthusiastically support the new service delivery model.

Every student, from those who need support to work at grade level to those doing more advanced work, will receive instruction that meets their unique needs and develops their talents and strengths.
