Screening for Subject-Specific (Level ll) and Part-Time (Level lll) Services

Students can be screened for subject-specific and part-time AAP services at any time in the school year. In the spring, schools review data on all students to determine services for the start of the next school year.

  •  Parents or guardians can initiate the screening process by submitting the AAP School-Based Services (Level II-III) Referral Form to the Advanced Academic Resource Teacher (AART) or Assistant Principal by April 15, annually.
  • Please open The AAP School-Based Services (Level II-III) Referral Form.
  • Parents or guardians who submit a referral will be notified by the local elementary school of their student’s eligibility status by early June.
