School District 11 funding is still pending, but is committed to assuring that all students who want to take an AP exam have access to one.

Registration information through AP College Board has been distributed to all AP students, and students have "joined" the AP course in order to access AP resource materials.

AP Legacy Grant
Coronado was part of a 3 year grant funded by the National Math and Science Foundation, and supported by the Colorado Education Initiative, focusing on our AP program. Students who took exams last spring and passed with a score of 3, 4, or 5 earned $21,200 in awards and were honored at the Winter Assembly, February 1, 2019. Each passing score in math, science, technology and English nets students $100. Congratulations to the 133 students who worked hard and earned those passing scores!
Although we have completed the 3 year grant, students who took and passed the 2019 AP exams with a 3 or better in science, math, English and tech will earn their awards this fall as well. The timeline looks to be similar to last year, with checks mailed in October or November. A special AP assembly will be held to recognize these students sometime in November or December. Congratulations to all students who particpated!
Advanced Learning Plans
The goal of an Advanced Learning Plan (ALP) is to give every identified student the opportunity to participate in creating goals that are personalized and useful. As the district high schools roll out the ALP, all documents related will be posted on this teacher page. Please click on the Gifted and Talented tab on the menu to the left.
What Are Advanced Learning Plans?
Colorado law requires an Advanced Learning Plan (ALP) -
Advanced Learning Plans (ALPs) are . . .“a written record of gifted and talented programming utilized with each gifted child and considered in educational planning and decision making.”From: Colorado Department of Education, 22-20-103. For the GT student, ALPs serve as a strength-based goal-setting enterprise. The key term here is strength-based. ALP goals are connected to the student’s identified area(s) of strength – verbal, non-verbal, and quantitative. From improving TCAP scores in one’s areas of strength to mentorship, independent projects, job-shadowing, research, and advanced studies classes, ALP goals serve as a means to enrich and develop the students’ gifted strengths.
Here is the timeframe to complete the online ALP** All ALP's are tied to ICAP this year and will be completed on Naviance. Emails and instructions will be provided to Gifted and Talented students beginning November 8.
** Failure to complete the ALP on Naviance/ICAP by the specified deadlines listed above will indicate that the student is choosing not to participate in the ALP goal setting activity for the current school year. The student will still be able to receive gifted and talented services, but will not have a formal ALP written.
