This is both a state and federally funded program for children. Children must qualify under state guidelines for certain categories and they receive individual and small group instruction in many subject areas. When they qualify they are serviced with an Individual Education Plan (I.E.P.) designed just for them. The whole idea of this program is to remediate the child's weaknesses by using his strengths and interests. The idea is to return the child into the regular classroom as soon as possible.

The Gifted Specialist works with the classroom teachers to provide resources and prepares dynamic, highly engaging experiences on a weekly basis. In addition, the Specialist suggests strategies that will challenge identified students and all high achievers.
