PROGRAMS FOR GIFTED STUDENTS
To provide acceptable programs for gifted students, educational opportunities appropriate to exceptional abilities must be provided. The responsibility of providing each student with the opportunity to realize his/her potential is recognized by the Buena Vista City School Board. Gifted students require a unique, advanced, and challenging educational program in order to enhance the development of their special abilities. The division shall use multiple criteria for the identification of gifted students as prescribed by the Board of Education. The School Board shall submit an annual report on its Program of Gifted Education to the Department of Education as prescribed by the Board of Education.
The School Board actively promotes and develops an appropriately differentiated educational program for gifted students in order to facilitate the fullest development of their potential. The School Board shall establish a local advisory committee for the gifted education program. Annually, the committee shall review the gifted education program, including any revisions to the program. The committee shall also determine the extent to which the program for the previous year was implemented by the division. The comments and recommendations of the committee shall be provided in writing to: (1) the Superintendent and (2) the School Board. The program shall be in compliance with the Code of Virginia and the Board of Education Regulations.
