School Within A School (SWAS)

If your student scored at or above the 99th percentile on the Full-4 Scale, s/he will be considered for the following school year SWAS program. We will not need to test further, but the following information will be gathered in the spring of 2011 and reviewed to determine the suitability of SWAS placement for your student: 
  • Benchmarks/writing test/CRT’s (if available)
  • Report card
  • A review of your student’s performance from his or her GATE teacher (if applicable) 
  • Recommendations from your student’s current teacher/site principal.
  • We will also take into account parental or guardian involvement in the spring SWAS orientation
  • Commitment to the SWAS placement.

It is strongly recommended that students who qualify for SWAS consideration participate in the GATE one day a week program.   Students scoring below the 99th percentile on the Full-4 Scale will not be considered for SWAS placement.
