What is Academic Extensions?

  • Programs and teacher collaboration that offers curriculum rigor for students who need and thrive on a "challenge."
  • Activities to further develop a talent or interest.

 Student Participation

Grade level teachers work as a team with the extensions teacher and principal to recommend student participation after examining multiple sources of data. These  sources may include:
  • STAR (achievement data) given by grade level teachers
  • CogAT (reasoning skills data) given by the Academic Extensions Teacher
  • SPOT checklist (gifted and talented characteristic checklist) done by the classroom teacher
  • Classroom performance
Students New to the Sartell School District

If you are moving to the Sartell School District 748, please provide all pertinent information concerning your child's participation in previous academic extensions programs.  All students go through our district's assessment process and there is no reciprocity between school districts.
