Accelerated Learning Programs & Services
TTUSD recognizes that in order to achieve continuous academic progress, some students need extra or more intensive support. Accelerated learners need differentiated curriculum that addresses their unique learning needs through acceleration, novelty, increased depth and complexity of content, flexible instructional grouping practices, social/emotional support, and advanced enrichment opportunities to systematically develop their creative productive capacities.
TTUSD is proud to share that we have expanded the Accelerated Learning Program and Services offered in our district to provide services for accelerated learners that support their continuous academic progress and healthy social and emotional development.
Services for accelerated learners require strong systemic support within the district, additional personnel with expertise in gifted education, and sufficient resources.
All elementary schools and middle schools in the district now have a designated Accelerated Learning Teacher for grades four through eight. These teachers are either regular classroom teachers or intervention teachers who teach a section of accelerated learning during the regular school day.
