Welcome to Mrs. Schulzki's Home Page
AP EXAM Schedule May 7 - May 18, 2018 - Online registration will occur late January through late March. School District 11 will pay for all AP exams. Mrs. Schulzki will be in AP classrooms in January to provide registration information.
AP Legacy Grant - students in Math, Technology, Science and English AP courses will be supported and encouraged to take advantage of spring Saturday study sessions, resources, and mock exams this year and next. Coronado is part of a 3 year grant funded by the National Math and Science Foundation, and supported by the Colorado Education Initiative, focusing on our AP program. Students who took exams last spring and passed with a score of 3, 4, or 5 earned $19,500 in awards and were honored at an assembly November 1. Each passing score in math, science, technology and English nets students $100. Congratulations to the nearly 110 students who worked hard and earned those passing scores!
2017-18 School year
Assisting and serving Coronado's GT population is my primary goal, but I also coordinate the following programs: Advanced Placement and CU Succeed dual enrollment.
I have set up my teacher page to assist you or your student in each of these areas - GT, AP, or CU Succeed, and will place pertinent information in the announcement section below, on my calendar (menu to the left), or under each of the programs I help coordinate (left).
Advanced Learning Plans
The goal for ALPs is to give every identified student the opportunity to participate in creating goals that are personalized and useful. As the district high schools roll out the new ALP, all documents related will be posted on this teacher page. Please click on the Gifted and Talented tab on the menu to the left.
What Are Advanced Learning Plans?
Colorado law requires an Advanced Learning Plan (ALP) -
Advanced Learning Plans (ALPs) are . . .“a written record of gifted and talented programming utilized with each gifted child and considered in educational planning and decision making.” From: Colorado Department of Education, 22-20-103. For the GT student, ALPs serve as a strength-based goal-setting enterprise. The key term here is strength-based. ALP goals are connected to the student’s identified area(s) of strength – verbal, non-verbal, and quantitative. From improving TCAP scores in one’s areas of strength to mentorships, independent projects, job-shadowing, research, and advanced studies classes, ALP goals serve as a means to enrich and develop the students’ gifted strengths.
Here is the timeframe to complete the online ALP** All ALP's are tied to ICAP this year and will be completed on Naviance. Emails and instructions will be provided to Gifted and Talented students beginning November 8.

** Failure to complete the ALP on Naviance/ICAP by the specified deadlines listed above will indicate that the student is choosing not to participate in the ALP goal setting activity for the current school year. The student will still be able to receive gifted and talented services, but will not have a formal ALP written.
Future Problem Solvers
Encouraging students to think outside the box and prepare for the future ahead is the emphasis of the Future Problem Solvers Club/Teams. I sponsor Coronado's chapter of FPS. If students are interested in this activity, they will just need to stop by my office in the north end of the Library/Media Center.
CU Succeed -
Apply and register - online tuition is waived again this year! School District 11 is investing in its' students. Students must earn an A,B, or C in their CU Succeed course. The tuition contract must be signed and returned. Mrs. Schulzki will visit each class that is registering for college credit each semester.
CU Platinum -
We are offering the CU Platinum course, Public Speaking, COMM 2100, each semester. Fall students will end this course Dec. 6. Registration will begin for the spring semester in January when we return from the Winter Break. The course begins the end of January through the beginning of May. Three college credit hours, transferable to a college of student's choice. Two high school credits can be earned as well - humanities or electives.
