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).
