BES Gifted Program

The goal of educational services for gifted students in the Berrien County Schools is to provide for the extension of learning opportunities and the development of individual potential through differentiated curricula beyond the opportunities and experiences in the general education classroom.

 

In Georgia, a gifted education student is one who demonstrates a high degree of intellectual and/or creative ability(ies), exhibits an exceptionally high degree of motivation, and/or excels in specific academic fields, and who needs special instruction and/or special ancillary services to achieve at levels commensurate with his or her abilities. (SBOE Rule 160-4-2.38 p.1)

 

Delivery models for serving gifted students include the collaborative models, honors classes, Advanced Placement classes, and Georgia Department of Education approved delivery models which appropriately serve the identified needs of gifted students in primary, elementary, middle, and high schools.

 

Berrien County uses the referral process for testing. To be eligible for gifted education services, a student must qualify through a multiple-criteria assessment process by meeting the criteria in any three of the following four areas: mental ability, achievement, creativity, and motivation.
