Definition of Gifted
Intellectually gifted children and youth are those who perform at or have demonstrated the potential to perform at high levels in academic or creative fields compared with others of their age, experience, or environment. These children and youth require services not ordinarily provided by the regular school program. Children and youth possessing these abilities can be found in all populations, across all economic strata, and in all areas of human endeavor. Gifted children may be found within any race, ethnicity, gender, economic class, or nationality. In addition, students with disabilities may be identified as gifted.
The Sheffield City School system shall prohibit discrimination against any student on the above basis with respect to his/her participation in the gifted program.
