AA#3011: High Ability Learners: Legislation, Acceleration, and Accountability-What Administrators Need to Know
Start Date: Thu, May 23, 2019 8:30 am - 3:30 pm Workshop #: 190523A-1
Presenter(s): IAGC--Diane Beedy

Room 9 - Professional Development Alliance, 2705 McDonough St., Joliet, IL 60436 (View Map)
Date Summary:   1 Session on 5/23/2019.  


This Administrator Academy is targeted to district superintendents and district level administrators. This course will increase awareness and knowledge about acceleration, an evidence-based intervention for meeting the needs of high-ability learners. The course reviews policy and legislation pertaining to acceleration.  Participants will align their district acceleration policies with the Illinois Accelerated Placement Act which requires districts to have a policy that allows for early entrance to kindergarten and first grade, whole-grade acceleration, and subject acceleration.  Participants will also gain resources and knowledge to implement, review, and improve policies to meet the needs of high-ability learners.
Participants will be able to:
(1) understand the legal, equity, and policy implications with respect to meeting the needs of high-ability learners; 
(2) understand the Accelerated Placement Act and its purpose; 
(3) understand the components of model acceleration policies and identify supporting resources; 
(4) evaluate district/school acceleration policy in accordance with the Accelerated Placement Act and equitable, evidence-based practices; and 
(5) synthesize information and develop or improve the district plan to align district policy with the Accelerated Placement Act and effectively meet the needs of high-ability learners, including those from special needs and underserved populations.
Reporting requirements for IL School Report Card data and ESSA related to high ability learners will also be addressed.
