Program Participation - Advanced Learners




Support > Online Guides > State Specific Guide > Ohio > Program Participation - Advanced Learners

Special Programs participation tracking determines whether (and key info about how) a student "participates" in a given program at any given time based on dates and content of completed documentation for any given student.

Below are the documents used to calculate a student's participation in an Advanced Learners program in Ohio. Program notes are set for each area of identification. In cases where an older version of the form exists, the documentation below applies similarly.

If a student should be considered as participating in an Advanced Learners program and does not display as such in SameGoal, inspect the table below. The student requires completed documentation that changes their participation status to "Participating". NOTE: In Ohio, once a student is identified as gifted, the student is considered "always gifted" per ODE. Therefore, there is not a means to "exit" the program once identified as participating.
