Gifted + Talented

The Elkhorn Area School District (EASD) provides appropriate and challenging educational opportunities for all students. An essential aspect of EASD’s comprehensive educational program is the identification and support of gifted and talented students. Gifted and talented students excel or have the potential to excel in one or more of the following areas: general intelligence, specific academic ability, leadership capabilities, creativity, and talent in the performing or visual arts.

The process for identifying high-achieving students is ongoing in grades K–12 and will include qualitative and quantitative measures. Through specific types of identification criteria, EASD can acknowledge the characteristics and needs of each gifted student.

Because of the range of interests and potential of gifted and talented students, the program utilizes a variety of approaches, strategies, and techniques to meet the academic and affective needs of the students. EASD believes that programming must include differentiation within the classroom, an opportunity to work with like-learners, an opportunity to work at an accelerated pace, and the continued support and development of their talents. Ongoing communication with parents, teachers, and administrators is also critical to providing for the needs of our advanced learners.

Staff liaisons are available in each building to provide on-site assistance for parents and staff. Instruction in the classroom is differentiated to provide challenging opportunities for all students.
