Gifted & Talented

  • Vision:
    Rigorous, student-centered learning experiences and social-emotional supports delivered by collaborative teams.
     
    Purpose:
    Identify and nurture gifted scholars through a continuum of services delivered in appropriate and challenging learning environments with rigor and individualization to foster creativity, leadership, and social-emotional well-being.

  • On Tuesday, Dr. Dixon shared recommendations with the school board regarding reopening school in the fall of 2020.  We know there are many questions about a variety of topics, including how gifted services fit into that plan.  While we do not have answers to all questions, we have compiled a document with information that we can provide at this time.  Please find a summary of that information and FAQs here.  This document will be updated as more information is available and as the reopening evolves based on state and federal guidelines and other factors.  We know this information is crucial for you as you make choices about schooling for your learner for the fall.  We hope this provides information to help you with that decision.
