Policy IGBB - Gifted and Talented Students Programs


The Altoona School District is dedicated to providing appropriate learning experiences to each student so that he/she can fulfill his/her potential. A great diversity exists among learners, necessitating different expectations for each; therefore, the educational community has a responsibility to identify and develop the talents of those students who are gifted and talented in the areas of general intellectual ability, specific academic ability, creativity, artistic ability and leadership.

Gifted and Talented students are those identified by professional qualified persons as capable of high performance by virtue of outstanding abilities. These are students who require differentiated educational programs and services beyond those normally provided by the regular school program in order to realize their contribution to self and society.
