Early Admissions to pre-K, K and 1st Grade

The Talbot County Board of Education believes that children who have superior ability and who demonstrate advanced academic achievement should be provided the opportunity to enroll in intellectually appropriate classes and educational settings.  The Board recognizes that acceleration has long been used as a practice to match appropriate learning opportunities with student abilities and that research documents the academic benefits and positive outcomes of personal acceleration for carefully selected students.  Therefore, the Board directs the Superintendent to establish procedures whereby students who meet established criteria may be considered candidates for advanced grade placement in Kindergarten and beyond.
