Once a gifted student is identified, a school enrichment coordinator meets with teachers and parents to plan an individualized program. Depending on the child’s age and ability, some of the many possible options considered might include: grade or subject acceleration; “in-place-of” projects or assignments performed within the class curriculum and/or independently; “pull-out” or after school small group enrichment activities; supervised participation in regional/ national contests and challenges; field trips; cultural events; mentorships (i.e. working one-on-one with an adult in an area of special interest); participation in summer programs for the gifted; and/or (for high school students) participation in a variety of advanced placement courses through satellite technology. In each case, objectives are planned and written evaluations are made each nine-week period. Such regular monitoring, as well as frequent contact with teachers, parents and students, make it possible to adjust individual programs and coordinate activities according to changing needs.
