Conecuh County is thankful for the many opportunities we provide for our students: pre-k, advancement placement, career technical programs, dual enrollment, advanced technology, extracurricular activities and programs, the humanities, and junior ROTC, as well as thoughtful, caring, and motivated leaders, teachers, and support staff.  Our teachers and leaders are dedicated to ensuring that students are prepared for their chosen college or career pathway. Realizing this goal and our commitment to our students, we are proud of our strong partnerships with stakeholders who embrace and support our schools.

 

Gifted Education

Gifted students are those who perform at or who have demonstrated the potential to perform at high levels in academic or creative fields when compared to others of their age, experience, or environment. These students require services not ordinarily provided by the regular school program. Students possessing these abilities can be found in all populations, across all economic strata, and in all areas of human endeavor.

Teachers, counselors, administrators, parents or guardians, peers, self, or any other individuals with knowledge of the student’s abilities may refer a student. Additionally, all second grade students will be observed as potential gifted referrals using a gifted behavior checklist.

For each student referred, information is gathered in the areas of Aptitude, Characteristics, and Performance. The information is entered on a matrix where points are assigned according to established criteria. The total number of points earned determines if the student qualifies for gifted services.

To make a referral, contact your child’s principal, counselor, or Rita E. Young, Gifted Education Coordinator, at 251.578.7074.
