Gifted & Talented Services

  • Our gifted and talented services are designed to match the unique needs, abilities, and interests of students. From primary through high school, students are encouraged to maximize their abilities through a wide range of services that offer appropriate learning opportunities to nurture their individual gifts and talents.

    The Fayette County Board of Education specifically allocates gifted resource teachers and Gifted Accelerated Program teachers to support schools in providing appropriate services for nearly 8,000 gifted students in FCPS. All schools offer these services along with some specific districtwide gifted programs organized to meet unique abilities and interests of students.     

    We have compiled a handy overview of state and local guidelines and information on screening, identification, placement, and services for each area of giftedness.
