Winter MAP scores are in.. EJ didn't do as well as I thought he would on the math (196-kinder) but is still way above the 99th percentile for kinder 98th for first 84th for second. His reading moved into the 99th percentil for kinder and 76th for first. I am not sure why these were sent home before conferences but thats ok, gives e time to formulate my questions.
I have already contacted the principal (before these came home), requesting a meeting with him, the school psych, the gifted teacher, his teacher and next years potential teacher. I want things in place well before school starts. I gave him the psych report yesterday so he has a clue where we are coming from.
From those of you who have been in my shoes, what should I be asking for for EJ. His GAI is 138, he is in the 99th percentile for reading and math on NWEA MAP. His WIAT scores place him in second grade for reading and third for math. Our school district doesn't skip and doesn't believe in math acceleration. Gifted pull outs are 45 minutes a week and start in second grade. There is a magnet school that starts in third grade (which EJ will qualify for unless he bombs the wisc in second grade).
