GW Gifted and Talented December Update

GW Gifted and Talented December Update
December 1, 2017 GWHS

The Gifted and Talented Office at GWHS provides students with the support they need to nurture their individual academic strengths. Both new and established GT students can take a few simple but important steps to make sure that they have access to the resources they need.

Gifted and Talented Advanced Learning Plans
Every Gifted and Talented student needs to complete an Advanced Learning Plan (ALP) to help identify personal strengths, yearly progress, and social and emotional needs. Start the process by logging in to Naviance HERE, using your six-digit student ID (lunch number) as your username, and your six-digit birthdate (February 9, 2000 would become 020900) as your password. Once you have logged in, please click on your “About Me” tab, then look for the link in the list of surveys to the left. Click ‘view all surveys,’ and you will be guided through the first part of your ALP. After you submit your ALP survey, the GT Office may be in further communication with next steps!

GT Goal Consultations
GT goal consultations are by appointment or walk in on Thursdays and may be set after a counselor, teacher, or administrative referral has been made. Students may self-refer through these professionals. Parents are always in full communication whenever goal consultations are in place. To schedule a consultation, fill out the form HERE.

Gifted and Talented Lunch Discussion Group
The GT Office hosts discussion group meetings every other Thursday in the Hall of Fame Room during lunch. The next few meetings are scheduled for December 14, January 11, and January 25. All GT students are welcome; if you plan to attend, please RSVP HERE.

If you have questions about the GW Gifted and Talented program, please reach out to Brian Beard at brian_beard@dpsk12.org.
