Gifted & Talented

An important goal of the Elgin Public Schools is to identify and provide appropriate educational experiences for students who give evidence of high performance capability in areas such as intellectual, creative, artistic, or leadership capacity, or in specific academic areas, and who will fully develop capabilities through various areas of enrichment. 

Initiatives to provide appropriate educational experiences will include: 
* Assessing the instructional level of identified students and considering the unique learning characteristics of each child
* Expanding the curriculum opportunities to allow gifted students to move through the core curriculum at the appropriate flexible pace
* Provide differentiated curriculum to meet unique needs
* Appropriately matching the programs and support services to the individual
* Structuring learning environments that address the unique needs of gifted students and accommodate a variety of  learning rates and styles
