Gifted and Talented Educational Services
Stafford Schools Gifted Services
Gifted individuals are those who demonstrate outstanding levels of aptitude or competence in one or more domains (National Association of Gifted Children). Students whose abilities and potential for accomplishment are so outstanding that they require additional services to meet their educational needs are served at all levels through the Focus on Excellence Program. The gifted resource teaching staff and gifted service programs are commonly referred to as "The Gifted and Talented Educational Services." The Gifted Resource teacher at each school provides services and resources to students, families, and general education classroom teachers to meet the instructional needs of students receiving gifted education services.
Therefore, the foundation of Stafford Schools’ gifted program provides opportunities for our gifted students to interact with their intellectual peers and participate in educational experiences with higher levels of depth and rigor. To promote the development of gifted students, we:
1) differentiate instruction;
2) collaborate with teachers, parents, and students;
3) provide for specialized educational experiences;
4) foster the development of a Growth Mindset.
