Ponichka Posted June 26, 2012 Share Posted June 26, 2012 I am new to this forum, but am enjoying the discussions tremendously. In the absence of any formal advisor, I thought I would ask a question about "hidden stones". To illustrate what I am looking for, I will give you a couple of examples. I learned through my son's school that you got to ask the teacher to refer your child for OLSAT testing. If you don't take an action, the kid may not be tested, and therefore, may not be placed into Gifted Program. Another example that recently brought up to my attention is "math referrals" at the end of elementary school. In our district, if your teacher gives you a referral you can take advance math in middle school. However, if you have no referral, you can only take regular math. These types of things are not advertised anywhere, I keep finding them out from parents. Are there any other things that the parent / child needs to know in order to advance within school system and benefit from various program offered by the public school? FYI - my boy is entering 3rd grade now. Thank you for informal advice. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
