Parent Referrals to STRETCH Program

 

 
STRETCH, Mehlville School District’s program for students identified as gifted, is now accepting parent referrals for the 2015-2016 school year for students currently enrolled in grades K-7.  The STRETCH program provides educational interventions for students
whose mental capacity and learning potential are so advanced that they need services beyond the level of those ordinarily provided.
 
Starting January 5, 2015 referral forms will be
available on the STRETCH webpage on the Mehlville School District website, from your school office or the STRETCH Office at 69 Randolph Place.  If you have questions about the program, contact the STRETCH teacher in your building or call the STRETCH Office at 467-7850.  The deadline for completed referrals is February 6, 2015.
