San Juan BOCES and Archuleta School District will offer early access to kindergarten or first grade in school year 2020-21 to support students who are evaluated to be exceptional in aptitude/cognitive reasoning, academics, school readiness and motivation. Early Access is not an acceleration pattern recommended for the majority of age 4 or age 5 gifted children.
Details about the application process are available by contacting Deb Nielsen, San Juan BOCES Gifted Education Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 970-946-3448. Applications are due by April 1st, 2020 and will take some time for families and teachers to complete. Applications will be reviewed by a San Juan BOCES team, and families will be notified of the decision on early access by June 1st.
