AAP Parent Virtual Coffee, Nov 22nd 

Save the Date: AAP Parent Virtual Coffee, Monday, Nov 22nd 

In an effort to provide local access to full-time Advanced Academic Programs (AAP) services, our school is in the process of starting a Local Level IV Program. Level IV services will be available at Kings Park Elementary in grade 3 and Kings Glen in grade 4 beginning in the 2022-2023 school year

The Local Level IV Program will allow center eligible students to stay at their neighborhood school to receive full-time services and will also provide increased opportunities for students throughout the school to access AAP curriculum more often. 

A virtual parent coffee will be hosted by Kings Park and Kings Glen via Zoom on Monday, November 22, 2021 at 9:00am. Register for the virtual parent coffee using this link. Zoom links will be emailed by 8:00am on Monday, Nov. 22.  During this meeting, we will discuss the process for becoming a Local Level IV site, describe what this means for our school, and answer any questions. We hope that you will be able to join us!
