What if my child moves to a different school?
If your child is eligible for services in the Extended Learning Program and you move to another school within the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District, your child is still eligible for services in the Extended Learning Program at the new school.
Out of District
The State of Alaska has not standardized programs for gifted students in how they are run or in how students are identified. As a result, your child may be placed in a program based upon test results from the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District, or s/he may have to retest. Inform the new district about your child’s placement, and they will let you know what services they have available and how to access them.
Out of State
Not every state has a program for their gifted students. Many states do, however, have excellent programs. In states where there is a program for gifted students, each has its own criteria for entrance into the program. Your child may have to be tested again in order to receive services in another state.
