WHAT IS CHALLENGING LEARNING?
Challenging Learning is a philosophy embodied by the Waupun Area School District that all students deserve the opportunity to be engaged, challenged, and grow. Challenging Learning is not a program, resource, or other “thing.” While Challenging Learning focuses on ensuring our students performing above grade level remain challenged and engaged, it is a collection of experiences that are open to all students interested in deepening their learning beyond the grade level curriculum. This is a result of our mission, “Acting together to maximize every student’s potential.”
Challenging Learning is not a Gifted and Talented Program. While some students may qualify for Gifted & Talented supports, the desire of WASD is to offer challenging learning for all students interested in challenging and/or engaging themselves beyond the already rigorous classroom curriculum.
ELEMENTS OF CHALLENGING LEARNING:
Ensuring Rigor Within the Classroom
Providing Enrichment & Extension Opportunities
Supports for Gifted & Talented Learners
