SPHS High Ability Program Page


  • Mission Statement:

     The South Putnam High Ability Program follows Indiana state mandates and codes for high ability students in grades K-12. The program provides resources, teacher training, and programming that supports differentiated instruction that is appropriate for individual students or cluster groups. Emphasis is placed on higher level thinking skills, creativity, and problem solving. Starting in the fall of 2010, a community/teacher liaison licensed in Gifted Education will be employed to assist classroom teachers in meeting the needs of identified high ability students.

  • Information    

      Students may be nominated by teachers, or parents, and then participate in an evaluation process which includes the Kingore Observation Inventory and NWEA (MAP) testing. A team of highly trained teachers evaluate individual student data before selecting students for the program.

      The program is directed by the high ability coordinator, licensed high ability liaison, and representatives from each building. A broad-based planning committee that may consist of highly qualified teachers, principals, guidance counselor, board members, parent representatives and other community stakeholders will meet periodically to address program development issues.
