FCPS Continuum of AAP Services

Fairfax County Public School offers a continuum of advanced academic services for all students in grades K-8.  Learning experiences are designed to develop high-level thinking through enrichment, acceleration, and extensions of the Program of Studies.  Teachers, administrators, and the advanced academic resource teachers work together to provide various levels of school based services in each elementary school.

Screening for school-based services can happen at any time during the school year but is done school-wide in spring to determine services for the next school year.  Parents or guardians may initiate the screening for school-based services by submitting the AAP School-Based Services (Level II-III) Referral Form to the Kings Glen Advanced Academic Resource Teacher, Mrs. Agner, by Thursday, May 25th .  Multiple criteria are used to screen students for all levels of AAP services including: parent information, CogAt and NNAT scores, SOL scores, work samples, as well as teacher input.

Mrs. Agner  or  call 703-239-4000.

Eating Disorders

€Eating disorders are real, complex, and devastating conditions that can have serious consequences for health, productivity, and relationships. They are not a fad, phase, or lifestyle choice.  Eating disorders are serious, potentially life-threatening conditions that affect a person’s emotional and physical health.
