Curriculum

Well-designed curriculum and sound instruction are the hallmarks of effective education. Much of the work of the Teaching and Learning Team addresses the need to tailor both curriculum and instruction to diverse student needs. The Unit 4 Teaching and Learning Team works with teachers and are working to build curriculum resources that will address the needs of each individual student. Unit 4 is charting a clear path to student success for all.


Testing for placement in the Champaign School District gifted classes will be administered to all 1st grade students in the fall of each year. Parents and guardians will receive a letter with more information on the testing. Families of current 1st grade students who were not initial qualifiers and families of current 2nd-4th grade students who are interested in gifted testing must submit an application to request additional testing. Students testing should be residents of Champaign and have completed an application.  Private school parents should contact the Gifted Department for applications.  All applications should be received by the gifted office at 502 W. Windsor Road. Students from private schools will test at the Mellon Administrative Center. Parents of private school students will be notified by mail of the time and date following receipt of completed application.
