Gifted and Talented Overview

Definition of Gifted
Gifted students perform higher in academic or creative fields when compared to others of their age, experience, or environment. Students possessing these abilities can be found in all populations, economic levels, and all areas of human endeavor.

Identification of Gifted Students
Students may be referred for consideration for gifted services by teachers, counselors, parents, or guardians, peers, self, or other individuals with knowledge of the students' abilities. All second-grade students will be observed as potential gifted referrals.

Eligibility Determination of Gifted Students
An Eligibility Determination Team will determine eligibility based on the results of aptitude/creativity test scores, student products, portfolios, work samples, and grades.

If you have questions or concerns regarding gifted services and supports, please contact your child’s Principal or Marilyn Burke at 256-241-3145.
