Focus on Excellence: Stafford's Gifted and Accelerated Program
Welcome to the Focus program at Widewater Elementary School! The Focus program in Stafford County is designed to provide services for academically gifted students. At the elementary school level, students identified as needing gifted services are cluster-grouped within otherwise heterogeneously grouped classes. As your Focus Resource Teacher, I will meet regularly with the identified students and serve as a resource to teachers in meeting the academic needs of highly-capable students. Please read through the announcements to learn more about various learning opportunities. Also know that the Stafford County Focus webpage has more information on our county's program. As always, please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns regarding your son or daughter.
If you have any questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the school at 540-658-6380.
Parents, please know that if you are interested in having your child evaluated for the FOCUS program this school year, you will need to meet with me to begin the referral process by February 28. The deadline for referrals is March 1. You can find more infomation on our district website. Thank you.
