    It is part of our mission to provide enrichment for all BCIS students. Following is an outline of our Enrichment Teacher’s Program:
    • Analyze assessment data to determine eligibility for specialized enrichment programs 
    • Design and deliver effective enrichment opportunities for the students that have significantly exceeded grade level expectations  
    • Interpret the school’s enrichment program for staff, parents, and members of the community 
    • Coordinate annual school-wide Enrichment Cluster program, a six-week schedule of small, cross-grade classes focusing on authentic, hands-on relevant learning across an area of disciplines. The Cluster program relies heavily on parent and community volunteers.  
    • Model gifted strategies in classrooms for all learners 
    • Work with teachers to compact curriculum and design learning experiences, which are connected to the curriculum and can be taught concurrently, for learners who are exceeding grade level expectations 
    • Provide for on-going evaluation of the school enrichment program and make modifications as needed
    For the 2015-2016 school year, grades 1, 2 and 3 will each have a small-group pullout session for Reading, Writing and Math. Two students will be chosen by classroom teachers from each class for each subject-specific group. Groups may during the school year. 
    If your child is chosen for Enrichment, a permission slip will be sent home and must be signed for him/her to participate in this pull-out program.
