Fairbanks North Star Borough School District Special Education Information
Fairbanks North Star Borough School District Special Education Department's goal is to collaborate with parents, families and agencies to develop and provide the best educational program for students with disabilities. We provide a range of educational and social services to individuals with disabilities who are between 3 - 22 years of age.
The Extended Learning Program (ELP), formerly known as the Gifted & Talented Program, is an extension of our current educational system and falls under Special Education. The goal of the ELP is to create educational opportunities for students whose needs and abilities exceed those provided by the general curriculum. We believe these provisions will help gifted students to grow toward their full potential. The ELP works in conjunction with current educational programs to provide enrichment, curriculum differentiation, social and emotional support, and awareness of community opportunities for students accelerating through the general curriculum.
Parents: Do you think your child (ages 3-5) may have problems with communication, learning, or skill development? We have CHILD FIND SCREENINGS for you!
Feel free to contact the Special Education Department with any questions or concerns, (907) 452-2000 ext. 11489.
