Structure and Student Support of Enrichment 
(click to view slide show)
As part of the Gifted Education comprehensive plan,  the department will follow the framework of a Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS).

Carlynton’s Gifted Education Program is comprised of various goals and objectives to address the areas of strength and need of a student as acknowledged in the Gifted Written Report and Gifted Individualized Education Plan (GIEP). These programs reflect individual differences, equal educational opportunity and a desire for the optimal development of every child. Students may have the opportunity to select differentiated options within the core curriculum, competitions, career exploration, and Advanced Placement classes.

 Gifted students receive the conceptual framework of continuous progress through the district’s mainstream curriculum. This curriculum includes alternatives to provide opportunities for different types of learning styles.  The central consideration for the education of gifted students is to provide appropriate educational opportunities commensurate with capabilities. A high level of challenge is provided in the classroom environment. This system of delivery meets the needs of gifted learners and also addresses the learning needs of high achieving students who attend our schools.
