The Pine-Richland School District is committed to providing opportunities which promote the growth of skills, knowledge and understanding necessary for identified gifted students to reach their potential and fulfill their future roles in our changing society. Inherent in that commitment is the recognition of the unique abilities, talents, interests and needs of intellectually gifted students which require special educational considerations.
The gifted program is a wholehearted commitment to the gifted student, yet the responsibility for educating a gifted student is the responsibility of all educators, the student's parents and the student.
To provide for the interests, abilities and goals of gifted students we offer a variety of administrative, organizational, curricular and instructional practices and provisions. Classroom modifications in curriculum content, instructional methods, student assignments, evaluation criteria and learning environment are essential components to differentiation.
The program is designed to include the affective and cognitive education of the student and to enhance the transfer of learning from the classroom to real life situations so that students become high level producers (not just consumers) of ideas and performers (not just appreciators) of artistic feats and services to society.
