Caldwell County School District's Gifted and Talented Program

Welcome to Caldwell County School District's Gifted and Talented Webpage! Our GT program services students in 4th-12th grades who have been formally identified in the areas of General Intellect, Creativity, Leadership, Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, or Visual/Performing Arts which includes Art, Music, Drama, and Dance. Primary students who exhibit potential for giftedness in these areas are serviced through our Primary Talent Pool (PTP). 


Administrators, guidance counselors, teachers, and the GT resource teacher all work together to meet the creative, intellectual, academic, social, and emotional needs of our gifted learners in accordance with 704 KAR 3:285. We strive to provide our students with opportunities to think critically and creatively, problem solve, lead their peers, and practice the essential skills that are necessary to succeed in the 21st century. The purpose of our program is to service approximately 15% of the student population whose abilities and talents are believed to be significantly more advanced than those of their age and peer group. The department takes into consideration students who may be underachieving, students with disabilities, and students from diverse or disadvantaged backgrounds.


Please do not hesitate to contact Gifted Services with any questions or concerns.
