 Academy Endeavour Elementary Talented and Gifted Program

The Endeavour Talented and Gifted (TAG) Program is designed to provide opportunities for the children whose academic needs extend beyond what can be offered in the regular education classroom. Attention is also given to understanding the special needs of the gifted child.
Our program for kindergarten through second grade includes pull out enrichment groups that provide students with demonstrated strengths in certain areas as an extension to their classroom experience. These groups vary in both content and time allotted based on each individual grade level's needs. Inclusion in these groups is in no way an indication of formal TAG identification.
Third grade is a transition year in regards to TAG programming. Enrichment groups will be designed to offer extension for students in the first semester. The second semester is used to begin the formal TAG identification process. If a child is identified as TAG, based on District 20 guidelines, they will begin the formal pull out acceleration programming in fourth grade and fifth grade.
Colorado Department of Education's Definition of Gifted Children

" 'Gifted Children' means those persons between the ages of four and twenty-one whose aptitude or competence in abilities, talents, and potential for accomplishment in one or more domains are so exceptional or developmentally advanced that they require special provisions to meet their educational programming needs. Gifted children are hereafter referred to as gifted students. Children under five who are gifted may also be provided with early childhood special educational services. Gifted students include gifted students with disabilities (i.e. twice exceptional) and students with exceptional abilities or potential from all socio-economic, ethnic, and cultural populations. Gifted students are capable of high performance, exceptional production, or exceptional learning behavior by virtue of any or a combination of these areas of giftedness:

General or Specific Intellectual Ability

Specific Academic Aptitude
