• SPECTRUM provides services for identified students in grades 6-8.  SPECTRUM is scheduled for a half-block on a rotating day basis.  The program is designed to meet the needs of gifted learners with an emphasis on higher-level thinking skills, problem-solving, and decision making.  The program provides students with opportunities for self-assessment and reflection on the demands and responsibilities of the gifted learner.
    Eligibility:  The LCPS Gifted Education Office is moving the 2020-2021 gifted eligibility process to the fall of 2021. This decision was made to ensure that the process is safe and equitable for all LCPS families. Curricular enrichment opportunities designed to develop talent will be offered for students during the first marking period. Screening and identification will begin in November. Virtual information sessions will be held in the fall to share information with LCPS families. At that time, families can follow up with their child’s gifted resource teacher with questions.
