LEAP Frequently Asked Questions
•    Where can I find my child's student email address?
Student e-mail addresses are located in the KIST address book connected to your KIST parent e-mail. Login to KIST Email to access the Address Book. Once logged in, click on People and type your child's surname to search for their email address.

•    Can I still apply for support classes if my child did not receive a recommendation from their teacher?
If you apply without a recommendation, your application will be screened by the LEAP coordinator and your child's classroom teacher. If it is deemed that the level is unsuitable, your child will not be enrolled. Students who have received a recommendation will be given preferential enrollment.

•    How do I know if my child can attend extension classes?
If your child has been deemed as meeting or exceeding grade level expectations in their reports, or diagnostic testing. If you are not sure, please ask your child's classroom teacher.
