ADVANCED ACADEMIC PROGRAMS (AAP): Screening for School Based (Level I-III) Services

Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) offers a continuum of advanced academic services for all students in grades K-8.  Learning experiences are designed to develop higher-level thinking through enrichment, acceleration, and extensions of the Program of Studies (POS).  Teachers, administrators, and advanced academic resource teachers (AARTs) work together to provide the following levels of school-based services in each elementary school: 

  • Critical and Creative Thinking Lessons, Grades K-6 (Level I)

All students in kindergarten through grade six receive level I services which consist of model lessons that are designed to teach critical and creative thinking skills.  The lessons are modeled in all classrooms by AARTs and the thinking strategies are then used throughout the year by classroom teachers and other teachers who work with students. Student responses to these model lessons are used as part of the identification process for AAP services.  Parents may also practice the thinking strategies during family conversations and activities.  A description of the nine critical and creative thinking strategies can be found here

  • Differentiated Lessons in Areas of Academic Strength, Grades K-6 (Level II)

The AART collaborates with classroom teachers to provide additional challenge through lessons and resources that extend and enrich the POS.  Level II services are part of a talent development pool.  Students are rescreened annually to make decisions about the need for this level of service.

  • Part-Time Advanced Academic Programs, Grades 3-6 (Level III)

Students identified by a local school screening committee for part-time advanced academic services are challenged through models and strategies designed to extend and enrich the POS in the four core subject areas.  Students receive direct instruction from the AART at the local school using curriculum from the AAP Curriculum and Resources to Support the Differentiated Framework.  Students identified for Level III services continue to receive level III services through grade 6.  

Screening for school-based services can happen at any time during the school year but is done schoolwide in spring to determine services for the next school year. 

Parents or guardians may initiate the screening for school-based (level II and III) services by submitting the AAP School-Based Services (Level II-III) Referral Form (located at the bottom of the page in forms) to the AART at Sunrise Valley prior to spring screening by June 1st , 2018.   Multiple criteria are used to screen students for all levels of AAP services.   

If a parent or guardian wishes to appeal an ineligible decision, they may submit an appeal with new data for consideration by the local school screening committee.  This new information should be submitted to Sara Balcanoff.   

If you have any questions, please contact Sara Balcanoff at sebalcanoff@fcps.edu.

5th Grade Parents/ Guardians: TDAP Vaccine Notice

In order for your child to begin 6th grade you will need to submit a medical record showing that the Tdap booster was given prior to the first day of school.

Ocean Art Show- April 10

Sunrise Valley Community- 

Hi, I'm Madeline, a student at  Sunrise Valley Elementary School. On Tuesday April 10th at 6:30-7:30 pm, Mrs. Leonard's 5th grade class will be having an ocean art show in the school's library.

We will be displaying the artwork we created to answer the question, “How could we as artists create an art exhibit to bring awareness about the human impact on the ocean and raise money for conservation efforts?”

At our event, we will be having a silent auction of our artwork and the money will be donated to the Ocean Conservancy! The Ocean Conservancy is an organization that “creates science based solutions for a healthy ocean and wildlife and communities that depend on it”.

We will be serving drinks and food. Pieces of art work made by Mrs. Leonard's class will be available to purchase in our auction! We are also doing a performance art piece and educating everyone about the problems. The pieces of artwork are mixed media paintings made with pieces of recycled trash collected by Mrs. Leonard's class.

This is a completely student run event.  We did the research, made the artwork, planned the art show, and created digital advertising using social media. Please join us next Tuesday  for a night of education, art, and fun!
