Gifted Instruction

Dates to Remember

All Gifted Referrals are due on or before February 15.  Referrals received after this date will be assessed in the next school year.

King George County Schools is committed to the identification of gifted and talented students in kindergarten through grade twelve. We recognize that students of exceptional ability have the need for differentiated educational opportunities that will further affirm and develop their potential. 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.
