Service Options

The Ohio Department of Education requires that districts identify students as gifted, yet it does not mandate service. At Perry Local, we believe in providing differentiated learning options for ALL students, including our gifted/talented. Those options (services) shall be consistent with their area(s) of identification.  Thus, each student's unique blend of talents must be considered when qualifying them for any advanced or accelerated option.

Students identified for gifted/talented services are not selected as a reward for either good performance or model behavior, but because they have different learning needs.
