Gifted and Talented

The District provides appropriate educational services to develop the potential gifts within each child. “Gifted and talented children” are those who have evidenced high-performance capability in cognitive ability such as intellectual or academic achievement; or in creativity and talent areas. The term “gifted” refers to a person who has the potential for performing at a remarkably high level of accomplishment, while “talented” refers to someone who is able to perform at a remarkably high level of accomplishment. The district's Gifted/Talented Program aims to identify students who demonstrate high potential and provide opportunities that develop cognitive and creative talents in those children through site-developed program plans. The policy can be found at sections EHHB and EHHB-R.
