Gifted and Talented Services: Grades 3-8
The gifted program is based on the Schoolwide Enrichment Model developed by Joseph Renzulli, PhD. The model systematically assesses strengths, provides enrichment opportunities and services, and utilizes a flexible approach to identification for the varied programs and services offered. Identification is based on the belief that gifted behavior consists of three attributes:
• above average ability
• high levels of task commitment
• elevated levels of creativity
Students who manifest these traits require a variety of educational opportunities and services.
