Welcome to Lakeville's SEEK Program
The SEEK Program provides advanced, extended instruction for those students whose needs are not solely being met in the classroom. The program fosters critical and creative thinking in an inquiry-based/project-based learning environment. Students engage in rigorous challenges beyond the regular classroom curricula and participate in activities, projects, and assignments. Three separate modules are offered for grades three through five: Literacy, Mathematics, and STEM.
SEEK teachers work closely with classroom teachers in a variety of ways to provide professional development for differentiated instruction resulting in enriched curricula for all students.
Identification of SEEK students begins in third grade and is based on multiple criteria:
- Performance on state and local assessments
- Demonstration of higher level problem solving and critical/creative thinking
- Score on standardized assessment designed to identify children for gifted & talented programs
Each year children are reassessed to determine whether SEEK services are required.
