LEA G.T. “Think Tank”


 Welcome to our LEA Gifted & Talented program.   We offer multiple opportunities for instructional & organizational enrichment.  Students will learn strategies that allows them to advance at a pace, which provides a steady challenge.  All gifted students are pulled out of their regular classroom for additional enrichment.  This means they could miss part of the regular classes and/or special classes.  It is the responsibility of the students to attend all G&T meetings.  Students are also responsible for their classroom assignments while attending the G&T meetings.  Regular classroom teachers will give additional time on assignments missed while the student is out of the room.
