Gifted Identification in Poudre School District

The Gifted and Talented (GT) program in Poudre School District is committed to identifying and serving gifted learners. 

  • GT learners are students between five and 21 whose abilities, talents, and potential for accomplishment are so outstanding that they require special provisions to meet their educational needs.
  • GT learners include gifted students with disabilities (i.e. twice exceptional) and students with exceptional abilities or potential from all socio-economic and ethnic, cultural populations.  Please visit the district link below to learn more regarding GT identification procedures in PSD.
