    Congrats on getting through the meeting with a plan to move forward on! Is there any follow up meeting planned for the fall after the initial transition?

    Yes we have alredy scheduled a check in meeting with the 6th grade team 5 weeks into the school year, and the social worker will meet with DD weekly at lunch for the first 5 weeks as well to see how it is going. After that it will be set up as needed.

    We are following the Iowa Acceleration manual and it is all outlined who is responsible for what and when.

    Just wanted to chime in and say "good luck" to your daughter. We've been considering one whether should consider requesting subject acceleration, and that it in itself is stressful. Although, I'm a newbie to all of this, your decision seems like a well-thought out, wise one to me!

    We've had her in subject acceleration and that's what led to the full skip. It seems they weren't really thinking ahead beyond elementary school with the subject acceleration. When you get to middle school, it becomes much more complicated. They tie this subject to that subject, you cannot take this class without that class. This class only meets then, and the other meets now. In elementary school it all sort of took place at the same time and wasn't an issue. Make sure with subject acceleration they have a plan for year to year.
