• Elementary talent development program 

    There is a talent development teacher at each elementary school. Collaborating with classroom teachers, talent development teachers provide direct instruction to students who meet specific criteria. Some elementary talent development services are delivered by classroom teachers.

     

    Talent Development and Gifted Education programming supports students at our 26 elementary schools.  Students receive tiers of support and programming based on their academic need.
