K-12 Gifted and Talented Program
It is the mission of District 622 to provide opportunities that enable the gifted and talented learner to strive for personal excellence.
High potential students are individuals who demonstrate original, flexible behavior that sets their product, ideas or accomplishments apart from the ordinary.
What do we do?
The High Potential Resource team provides direct services to identified students in grades 3-8. In addition, our elementary resource teachers provide enrichment groups to students in grades 1 and 2 who are recommended by their classroom teachers.
We review student data, collect data and do individual testing of students to identify those students in need of services. We act as a resource to classroom teachers in order to provide challenging learning experiences for learners.
Who are we?
Our team is composed of a coordinator, eight elementary resource teachers assigned to the various buildings, and three middle school resource teachers who work with the three middle schools. At the high school level, selected staff offer Advanced Placement courses or College in the Schools courses to provide academic rigor for our students.
