Who is the target group for SSA? *Students working at least two years above their current grade level (work samples needed) *Students who score a 85% or above on their current grade level benchmark assessment (for 3rd quarter.) *Students do not have to be part of the AIG program (but must still be at least two years ahead) *Students nominated by parents and/or teachers. *Students taking high school courses are NOT eligible.
.Items to Consider before taking the SSA assessment: *The student should be free of any adjustment problems or concerns (working with students a year or two older; being the only SSA student within that particular class.) *Students, who go with SSA and qualify, have a strong possibility of taking classeswith the advanced grade level. Some advanced courses aren't offered within a particular grade level's schedule. *The parents must be in favor of grade advancement, but the child should also desire to move ahead. *A child's maturity level (with input from parents/teachers) *A child’s study habits, motivation, and ability to adjust and to be flexible. *Social and emotional development
