Gifted/Talented Enrichment

Children are identified as “gifted and talented” students at the elementary, middle school and high school levels as having demonstrated potential abilities of high performance capability and needing differentiated or accelerated education or services.

Gifted and talented students will be provided instructional programs which differentiate, enrich and support the regular educational program.
