Gifted Education

Downingtown Area School District supports gifted education in elementary, middle, and high school through individualized plans (GIEPs) that provide specially designed instruction to enrich, to accelerate, or to provide a combination of both programming services to nurture and to develop the identified strengths of the academically gifted student.

Gifted programming conforms to the mandates outlined in Chapter 16 of the PA Code: Special Education for Gifted Students. These regulations define a mentally gifted student as a student possessing "outstanding intellectual and creative ability the development of which requires specially designed programs or support services, or both, not ordinarily provided in the regular education program.
