Criteria for Special Placement
The growth of each and every student in the Trumbull Public Schools is essential; it aligns squarely with the District’s Mission Statement to “meet the educational needs of all students within a challenging and supportive academic environment that empowers each student to become a life-long learner and to live and participate in a democratic, diverse, and global society.”
In all courses and grades, curricula is differentiated to meet the needs of students with potential for accelerated study. Additionally, at appropriate times, the District formally supports students who meet published criteria for special placement; such opportunities include:
- in grades 4-5, the Trumbull Academically Gifted Program and Enrichment;
- in grades 6-8, advanced course placement in mathematics; and
- in grades 9-12, advanced course placement across all subject areas.
