Gifted and Talented at Skinner

ALL schools in the district, including Skinner Middle School, are responsible for meeting the needs of identified gifted and talented students.  Services range from pull-out programs and cluster grouping for instruction, to a variety of enrichment opportunities.  The gifted education teacher collaborates with classroom teachers in differentiating instruction as appropriate for gifted students, and may implement curriculum materials developed by the Gifted and Talented Department to enrich and extend learning for gifted, talented, and/or advanced students. The gifted education teacher, in collaboration with the classroom teacher, parent and student develop and support the implementation of advanced learning plans which document programming for each individual child.
