The Texas State Plan for the Education of Gifted/Talented Students
"Gifted" vs "Gifted Services"
Because a school district is tasked with educating students, gifted services are provided to students who have instructional needs beyond the scope of the general education classroom. Sometimes that means having more complexity or rigor added to the core curriculum like extending a science lesson or unit. This is called Core+. Sometimes students have such a need that they receive additional services in a different setting with an Advanced Learning Teacher. These Pullout lessons last about two hours each week. Finally, some students need acceleration of up to two years in all the core areas of instruction and they may need Responsive Acceleration Pathways to ensure they are challenged appropriately.
Serving Gifted Students/Clustering
GT Core+ students identified for gifted services are clustered together as part of the Total School Cluster Grouping Model. The teachers with these clusters are GT trained and supported by the campus Advanced Learning Teachers.
GT Pullout in addition to Core+, some students will receive a 2 hour pullout each week for more in-depth services
RAP Students will progress through curriculum at a faster and more personalized pace than their current grade peers completing up to 8th grade content by the end of 6th grade.
