King George County Schools Statement of Philosophy for the Education of Gifted Students

Gifted students in King George County Schools are those students whose abilities and potential require special educational programs to meet their educational needs. The county is committed to the use of multiple criteria for identifying gifted students from all cultural and socio-economic backgrounds.
