Subject or Grade Acceleration

Minnesota Statute 120B.15 indicates that a school district must adopt procedures for the academic acceleration of gifted and talented students. These procedures must include how the district will:

  • Assess a student's readiness and motivation for acceleration
  • Match the level, complexity, and pace of the curriculum to a student to achieve the best type of academic acceleration for that student.

School District 197 has three ways in which students have an opportunity for academic acceleration.  These methods are listed below, and you can learn more about each by clicking on them.

Additional resources for each academic acceleration method above can be found below, including procedures, and applications (where applicable).
