A new "School Within a School" program, or Gifted and Talented program, started last fall in District 11.
The program is based at Eisenhower Elementary with students coming from as far as Ham Lake, Anoka and Blaine who've qualified for the program. There is one classroom in each grade, three through five. All are currently distance learning, but excited to soon be back in the classroom.
There are 19 students enrolled in Ted Erickson’s 5th grade class. Two of the students will stay distance learning, when the rest of the class comes back to in-person learning on February 1.
