Description of Service
The Gifted & Talented Education Department provides academic support and enhancement across the district for students identified as gifted and talented as well as for advanced learners.

Urgent Services Provided
Provide identified students with rigorous, challenging educational opportunities which are responsive to their individual strengths and needs so they will achieve academic growth commensurate with their abilities.
“Gifted children” means those school-age children and youth whose abilities, talents, and potential for accomplishments are so outstanding that they require special provisions to meet their educational needs. Gifted and talented students are capable of high performance, exceptional production, or exceptional learning behavior by virtue of any or a combination of the following:
• general or specific intellectual ability
• specific academic aptitude
• creative or productive thinking
• leadership and human relations abilities
• visual arts, performing arts, spatial or musical abilities
Gifted children represent all cultural, ethnic, linguistic, and socioeconomic backgrounds and may demonstrate both gifts and disabilities.
