Glendale Curriculum & Instruction
Along with meeting Pennsylvania Common Core, our district pushes our students to achieve their highest potential. We do this by providing our staff with all the resources, tools, and programs necessary to foster student success.
Glendale’s Student Assistance Program (GAP)
The GAP is the Student Assistance Program (SAP) at Glendale. It is a systemic process using techniques to mobilize school resources to remove barriers to learning. The core of the program is a professionally trained team, including school staff and liaisons from community alcohol and drug and mental health agencies.
SAP team members are trained to identify problems, determine whether or not the presenting problem lies within the responsibility of the school, and to make recommendations to assist the student and the parent.
When the problem lies beyond the scope of the school, the SAP team will assist the parent and student, so they may access services within the community. The student assistance team members do not diagnose, treat, or refer to treatment; however, they may refer for a screening or an assessment for treatment.
Four Phases of Student Assistance
Glendale School District offers gifted education for students of school age beyond second grade with an IQ of 130 or higher who meet established multiple criteria indicating gifted ability or a school-aged student with IQ lower than 130 when educational criteria strongly indicate gifted ability.

The Glendale School District seeks to provide all students with disabilities a free, appropriate public education. Some of our students require specially designed instruction and/or support services to be successful in the classroom. Students can receive these learning opportunities through special education services within our school district.
