The Talent Development program at Delano Public Schools serves gifted and talented students in grades K-12. Students in grades K-4 are provided opportunities for enrichments through pull-out units and school-wide enrichments. Participation at this level is maintained through teacher recommendation and a variety of state and local assessments. Formal identification is completed at the end of second grade. Identified students are placed in cluster classrooms for grades 3-6. Advanced math courses are available for students grades 5-8. High school gifted and talented students are provided services in the form of advanced and honors classes, AP courses, College in the Schools course and post-secondary options.
