Augusta County Public Schools Gifted Education
Augusta County Public Schools believes that gifted students possess outstanding talents and abilities that require curriculum and instruction to meet their educational needs. We are committed to meeting these needs through acceleration and enrichment by differentiating for these students.
Gifted students are students in elementary, middle, and secondary schools beginning with kindergarten through twelfth grade who demonstrate high levels of aptitude or who show the potential for higher levels of achievement when compared to others of the same age, experience, or environment. These students require differentiated instruction to meet their educational needs. They will be identified according to Augusta County's screening, referral, and identification process in mathematics, science, English, art, instrumental music, vocal music, and/or theater.
Augusta County will continue to identify students for the gifted education program in grades K-12 with an emphasis on K-2 and on historically underrepresented groups to include students of low-socio-economic status, twice exceptional learners, and students from diverse cultural, linguistic, and ethnic backgrounds. Areas of giftedness identified in Augusta County are: mathematics, science, English, art, instrumental music, vocal music, and theater.
