Jefferson County Public Schools is dedicated to providing comprehensive programming for the identification and education of the gifted and talented student. Gifted and talented students are those students whose abilities, talents, and potential for accomplishment are so exceptional or developmentally advanced that they require special provisions to meet their educational programming needs. The district believes that a quality instructional program that differentiates curriculum and instruction is essential so all students can learn and grow at their level of potential.
