This is a great tool for parents, educators, and school administrators who are looking to build a policy on acceleration, as well as learn more about the different types of acceleration available. I really found this resource to be helpful and practical because they specifically site the research that supports acceleration and it isn’t too long for individuals to read. This resource is user friendly and very informative.
