The Schools for Advanced Studies (SAS) are programs designed throughout the District which have been implemented to improve educational options and increase professional training to support the development of gifted and talented youth. The SAS Program receives funding from the District in the form of a block grant. SAS teachers and administrators are required to participate in professional development training. The SAS Program offers an intensive academic articulated program in which both innovative and traditional courses are taught. The course content is modified to match the students’ achievement level or capacity for learning. The SAS program is offered to LAUSD resident students in Grades K-12 who meet the criteria.
Identified gifted students or those students meeting the District’s eligibility requirements, may apply to Encino’s SAS Program. SAS permits will be considered on a space available basis.
