Continuous Progress Curriculum
The Frances A. Karnes Center for Gifted Studies received three federal grants for Continuous Progress Curriculum from 2008 through 2011.
The Continuous Progress Curriculum Model for Elementary Schools is designed to organize schools around the acceleration of students through established elementary curricula. This model is based on the premise that when adults organize around the needs of the students, student achievement increases. It is focused on (1) creating multiple entry points in which students of any age or academic strength may enter into an instructional setting that is designed to meet them where they currently are functioning and take them as far and as fast as they can possibly go, and (2) providing training and continuous support for teachers and administrators through (a) periodic progress monitoring and data gathering and interpretation, and (b) review of periodic progress data by assisting teachers and administrators on scheduling methods and flexible instructional grouping scenarios.
