Gifted & Talented ϳԹ Department

The ϳԹ District is committed to the belief that each student has a right to receive an education based on their individual needs. Gifted students are entitled to a differentiated curriculum consisting of courses of study in which the content, teaching strategies and expectations of student mastery are appropriately modified to further develop students’ strengths and provide them with the opportunities to reach their fullest potential. In accordance with this philosophy, ϳԹ District uses the Advanced Content model for gifted students in grades K-12.
