Parents hoping to learn more about the elementary Advanced Learner Programs (ALPs) and Primary Talent Development (PTD) programs should head to Southern High School Thursday night for a special workshop.
From 6:30 to 8 p.m., officials from Anne Arundel County Public Schools (AACPS) will provide “hands-on sessions,” followed by a question-and-answer session from 8 to 8:30 p.m.
The first 90 minutes will include updates on ALPs and PTD programs and two 30-minute breakout sessions.
“As we near the midway point in our first year of these reorganized programs, we want to provide parents and others with a chance to have their questions answered,” said Maureen McMahon, the assistant superintendent of advanced studies and programs, in a press release.
McMahon added that parent input is important.
“Interested and involved parents who can supplement at home the lessons we provide in the classroom” are vital to the success of the programs, McMahon said.
