Gifted Education - Placement and Program

The referral procedure (teacher or parent initiated) and MDE process for gifted students are the same as previously explained for other exceptionalities. Students indentified as mentally gifted at the K-8 level participate in a pull-out program for enrichment purposes. The program is staffed by one itinerant teacher.
At the secondary level, options include honors courses, concurrent enrollment at Northampton Community College with the approval of the principal, concurrent enrollment in area colleges (seniors only) with the approval of the principal, and concurrent coursework at another school, when appropriate, and with the approval of the principal. In addition, advanced placement tests are available to students, as is the opportunity to participate in independent study courses through the University of Nebraska at Lincoln.
