Gifted and Talented
Students in BVSD are identified through the CDE identification process. Also, beginning in 2017, all 2nd grade students across the district will be given a gifted and talented screening assessment. The hope of the BVSD GT department is that the screening will help identify some of our previously underrepresented groups of students.
Gifted students are supported in the classroom by individualized Advanced Learning Plans (ALPs) which are developed according to the student’s area(s) of giftedness, interests, and instructional and affective needs.
Teachers and GT advisors work in conjunction to develop the ALPs as well as unique learning opportunities for gifted students.
