Gifted and Talented (GT)


    Gifted & Talented Program

    GT stands for Gifted & Talented

    In BVSD, GT students are defined as those from kindergarten through 12th grade whose demonstrated or potential abilities are so outstanding that it becomes essential to provide them with qualitatively different educational programming. Students are identified using multiple criteria. Programming is designed to meet cognitive and affective needs through opportunities for acceleration, complexity of thinking and in‐depth learning. Individualized programming and goals are documented in an Advanced Learning Plan (ALP) or Individual Career and Academic Plan (ICAP). GT students include gifted students with disabilities (i.e. twice exceptional) and students with exceptional abilities or potential from all socioeconomic, ethnic and cultural populations. GT students are capable of high performance, exceptional production, or exceptional learning behavior by virtue of any or a combination of these areas of giftedness:

    • General or specific intellectual ability. 
    • Specific academic aptitude. 
    • Creative or productive thinking. 
    • Leadership abilities. 
    • Visual arts, performing art
