Gifted and Talented Development

Gifted and talented children are those students with outstanding abilities and capable of higher performance when compared to others of similar age, experience and environment. They have significantly different educational needs from their peers and require educational differentiation as a regular part of their school day to ensure they reach their full potential. These services are available at all elementary and middle schools. 

District 196 uses multiple criteria to help identify gifted and talented children. For more information, see policy 610 under Board Policy.

For more information, checkout the District 196 GT webpage and our Westview Gifted and Talented Teacher, Mrs. Andersen's GT webpage
