Update 2/8/23
According to a press conference today (2/8/23), the evacuation zones have been lifted and the road closures have been opened. All students should be able to be transported to and from school tomorrow, February 9, 2023 as normal. 
 
For families who chose to evacuate, absences for the remainder of the week will be considered excused. Absent students can work from Schoology, should they be able to. Families of K-4 students can either contact their child’s teacher for work or can get caught up upon their return to school. Should your family be impacted and you need assistance, please reach out to your child’s school. 

Gifted Support

Welcome to the Gifted Support webpage!

Chapter 16 of the Pennsylvania School Code recognizes that gifted students need specially designed instruction, based on the unique needs of each student.  Gifted education shall enable gifted students to participate in acceleration and enrichment, or both, as appropriate, and to receive services according to their intellectual and academic abilities and needs (16.2).
 
If it is determined that a student may possibly be mentally gifted, the student's records will be reviewed, and the respective school guidance counselors and principal will gather information from the student's parents and teachers.  If the data supports a need, parents will be asked to give written permission for further evaluation.  This process is called Gifted MultiDisciplinary Evaluation (GMDE).
