K-8 Enrichment

K-8 Enrichment For All

Differentiated classroom instruction is implemented throughout each content area to address the variance among individual learners by integrating gifted education within regular classroom settings.  All BOE-approved curricula include modifications for identified students indicating content, process, products, and learning environment. Classroom-based assessments inform instructional planning for differentiation of instruction.  In addition, “Enrichment for All” opportunities provoke curiosity, creativity, exploration, problem-solving, investigation, and discovery. 

Service Goals include:

  • Expansion of divergent thinking, creativity, and engagement;
  • Development of the dispositions, patterns of behavior, and conscious thought that supports students in achieving learning goals.


In addition to differentiated content area instruction provided by the certified teacher, our delivery of K-8 Tier 1 "Enrichment For All" services include:
