Upcoming Events

The Office of Academic Challenge and Enrichment and CALA offer monthly meetings and workshops around issues of advanced learning.  All CPS parents and educators are welcome to attend. If you’d like to suggest a topic or recommend a speaker, please contact Paula Feynman, CPS’s Academic Challenge Program Manager - your ideas are greatly appreciated!

Here are upcoming events:

Wednesday, April 16, 2014, 6:30-8pm
Q&A with Dr. Victoria Greer, CPS New Head of Student Services
This will be an opportunity for parents to talk with Dr. Victoria Greer, CPS’s new head of the Office of Student Services, which oversees special education in our district. If twice-exceptionality (2e) is an issue for your family, this will be a very useful session to attend.  2e is when a child has both advanced learning issues and also a learning or other disability or delay.  Also, when a child is very advanced in some areas and typical in others, it sets up a 2e-type tension, as the child struggles with the disparities in their learning.

Monday, May 19, 2014, 6:30-8pm
Q&A with Dr. Jessica Huizenga, CPS New Head of Curriculum
This will be an opportunity for parents to talk with Dr. Jessica Huizenga, CPS’s new head of the Office of Curriculum and Instruction. The focus will be on how CPS’s ongoing approach to curriculum and instruction insures that advanced learning is also addressed.
