Talented and Gifted Education at the Wallkill Central School District is made up of two unique components: Enrichment and SNAP.
Enrichment activities are designed to meet the needs of students in each school. These activities vary from one school to the next.
2014-2015 District Enrichment Facilitators:
Leptondale: Joe Zupan
Ostrander: Sara Ellison
Plattekill: Edie Duncan
Middle School: Leanne Cerbone
High School: Juliette Reale
The Student Needs Assessment Process, or SNAP, focuses on students identified through guided referral and standardized assessment. Students identified via SNAP receive individual Student Learning Plans (SLPs) and tailored enrichment activities.
At the April 13, 2015, meeting of the Curriculum/TAG Committee, students who participated in this year's Expanded Horizons program presented their year-end projects. Students worked under the direction of Wallkill High School Expanded Horizons Advisor Kim Vona and Ulster BOCES Arts Specialist Rochelle Victor.
Expanded Horizons is a leadership institute and seminar series for students in Grades 9-12 who demonstrate significant intellectual curiosity, leadership skills, and high academic potential.
