Waterloo Schools launch plan to help advanced students


One eastern Iowa school district launched a new initiative Tuesday to help advanced students.

The new "Office of Advanced Learning" will help Waterloo students who are high performers or have the potential to be. The office will focus on the development and implementation of programs and services, as well as identifying and serving students with advanced learning needs.

Waterloo West Principal, Doctor Gail Callahan will be the new principal in the Office of Advanced Learning.

Waterloo Superintendent Dr. Gary Norris says, "we had a lot of individuals who were giving an hour or two or several hours at a time during the week and they were helping our ed services but we really didn't have that single point of focus."

The search for Callahan's replacement at West High will start right away.
