Policy 605.02

Program for High Ability Learners

The District recognizes the individual characteristics of students and strives to advance, to the fullest, all aspects of each student’s development.

High ability learners in the district are those students who give evidence of high performance capability in such areas as intellectual/academic, creative or artistic capacity and who require accelerated or differentiated curriculum programs in order to develop those capabilities fully.

The board directs the superintendent to develop selection methods, regulations, and procedures to ensure that appropriate programs, within budgetary limitations, are provided for the high ability learners. The board also expects the superintendent and staff to inform patrons of the District about available high ability learner program options.
