7th - 12th Grade Gifted Services
At the secondary level, students receiving gifted services are no long pulled from from their classes for separate enrichment. This is because their class time becomes less flexible to recover as instruction becomes more rigorous.
Pre-AP and Advanced Placement teachers receive training in their content area as well as professional development in differentiation strategies and best practices for supporting the needs of gifted students.
Beginning in Fall 2019, Jacksonville Middle School advanced team teachers will all receive training in the depth and complexity framework as well as follow up support throughout the year. The plan is to soon provide the training for teachers of advanced classes at the high school as well.
