Vision

Gifted and Talented Vision Statement and Values

  • Brighton School District 27J provides opportunities for gifted and talented students to develop their personal potential. Classroom instruction includes the use of differentiation. Differentiated instruction is the process of teaching and learning that begins with the premise that not all students are alike. Differentiation meets each student where he is and maximizes his opportunities for success. In addition, each school provides enriched and varied opportunities for gifted and talented students to enable them to develop their specific abilities.

    Gifted education values:

    • Shared responsibility of educators, parents, and community for the academic and effective growth of gifted and talented learners
       
    • A climate of excellence and rigorous curricula for every child

    • High quality standard for professional educators who work with gifted and talented learners

    • Identification of exceptional potential in all populations of race, culture, gender or income level
