• 5thkids with robot  Grade GT Extension     

    GT Extension class is an enrichment class for students identified as gifted learners. It is meant to enrich, not replace differentiation in the core subject areas.  Differentiation in the core areas is served by the cluster teacher.  The GT Extension class was created to support the GISD policies and procedures for gifted learners to help GT students excel in research and create excellent products with a STEM focus while challenging their capabilities in learning.
