Advanced Learning Plan Information

ALP Services

Overview of ALP Program:
We believe that students learn best when they are challenged to acquire greater knowledge, skills, and character. Students who have an active Advanced Learning Plan (ALP) have undergone Poudre School District Identification Process. State and District policies detail the identification process that is used at Traut Core Knowledge School.

We believe that students benefit the most when their education is approached from a partnership with teachers, parents, and students. We encourage parents to be actively involved in their student’s ALP programming and activities. Communication of Advanced Learning Plans and activities is open and valued. Parents are encouraged to stay in contact with their student’s teachers regarding their ALP experience at Traut Core Knowledge School.

Structure:
Students may receive support within the regular classroom setting, in a pull-out small group setting, or in the form of before/after school enrichment opportunities.

Advanced Learning Plan Opportunities:
Academic Programming-

Language Arts:
In the area of language arts, we believe that the Core Knowledge Sequence is rich with opportunities to stimulate interest and advanced achievement for our ALP students. We also firmly believe that language arts goals are best met within the classroom by the classroom teacher. Additional programming may be offered in the form of before/after school enrichment opportunities.

Mathematics:
Mathematics requires a more formalized approach to differentiation. We believe that students’ needs are best met in mathematics when they are able to investigate and deepen their levels of understanding. Mathematics programming can be either within the regular classroom setting, in a pull-out small group setting, or in the form of before/after school enrichment opportunities.

Creativity:
In the area of creativity, all of our ALP students are encouraged to think and behave in a way that develops this talent. Student activities during the school day, extracurricular activities, and family activities outside the classroom, and before and after school enrichment opportunities help to satisfy this requirement.

Social/Emotional Programming-
From the Traut Knowledge School Covenant:
"Learning to act in a respectful and responsible way is crucial to high academic achievement, and we have identified twelve character traits or qualities that we incorporate into our classroom instruction. The family bears the key responsibility for character instruction. Our school will not use programs, presentations, surveys, curricula, or other practices that undermine these character qualities, or which disregard the privacy of the family. Instead, our students’ emotional needs will be addressed through the support given by sensitive and caring teachers, staff members, and parent partners."
