Gifted learners demonstrate the potential for advanced thinking and reasoning, creativity and high achievement when compared to others who are the same age with similar experiences and comparable home environments and cultures. Programs and services must be designed to meet their unique cognitive strengths and socio-emotional needs. Each school within Chesterfield County Public Schools has a gifted education facilitator who addresses gifted education concerns.
Each school board must review and approve a comprehensive plan for the education of the gifted. That plan must provide specific explanations of how the school division implements Virginia’s regulations governing educational services for gifted students.
