The CCPS Advanced Academics (G/T) Program is designed to meet the needs of highly able learners and maximize student achievement. Advanced Academics teachers, in collaboration with classroom instructors, will continue to provide a continuum of instructional options designed to meet the needs of highly able learners and students identified as possessing gifted learning traits. This may include in-class extended instruction, pullout enrichment groups, and/or advanced resource development with classroom teachers. A Referral and Review Team, as well as collaboration with classroom teachers, will determine student eligibility for advanced instructional options. Indicators for participation include observational checklists, standardized test scores, work samples, and classroom performance. Although students are not typically, formally identified until the beginning of third grade, Advanced Academics teachers will continue to provide a range of services for grades K-5. Look for more information about the program to come home throughout the school year.
I have been the part time art teacher for a few years here at Linton and I am so very happy to become the full-time art teacher next year. I am sad to see Ms. Peck retire but she promises she will sub in the future and students may still get to see her on those days. I will try to continue many of the traditions and projects that she created here at Linton over the years.
Fourth and Fifth grade clay cupcakes are coming home soon. Some classes may have brought them home already. We celebrate all their hard work . Be sure to ask them all about the firing process and the new vocabulary they learned about clay and Wayne Thiebaud, our featured artist.
Mrs. McCusker, Mr. Collins, and Ms. Reddinger would like to thank the LSE families for their support of all the musical opportunities and performances this year! It was a joy to see our students performing on stage again. We look forward to working with your children again next year!
The mission of the Linton Springs Elementary School Resource Team is to support colleagues and parents in providing differentiated instruction to move every child forward in the general education curriculum by addressing differences in learning styles and promoting self-advocacy.
The Special Education Resource Program is designed for those students with disabilities who are placed for all or most of their instruction in a regular classroom program and curriculum, but who require either consultative or supplementary support and assistance in order to learn. Students in this program have an Individualized Educational Program (IEP). In addition a wide range of itinerant services are available.

The initial contact for any concerns regarding your child's educational program is your child's teacher. Call to schedule a parent/teacher conference.
Together, you and the classroom teacher will discuss and plan a course of action to address the concerns.
It is important to note that many students at one time or another may experience education problems which can be resolved without a special education IEP referral.
When needed, the Special Education clerical assistant will contact the parent to schedule a meeting with the IEP team. Further information on the IEP process is available by contacting Partners for Success at (410)751-3954 or (410) 751-3955. You may also link to the Carroll County Special Education Page.
