Advanced Academics Programs
There are two types of models to support the Level IV program- the center and Local Level IV. Currently, Sleepy Hollow Elementary School offers a Local Level IV classroom in 3rd grade. As of the 2018-2019 school year, the Local Level IV classroom will be offered in 3rd and 4th grade. And the Local Level IV program will be fully implemented in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade in the 2019-2020 school year.
All of the students in a full-time AAP center-based class have been identified as center-eligible by a central selection committee and will be coming from several neighborhood schools to comprise the center class. In a Local Level IV classroom, the students are a mix of students who are center-eligible and high achieving students who are capable of working at advanced levels, all enrolled in their local school.
Local Level IV Services provide an important option for advanced learners who need the challenge of a full-time AAP center curriculum and do not want to leave their local school.
