Elizabeth City-Pasquotank Public Schools

Academically / Intellectually Gifted

Gifted Education in ECPPS

Academically or intellectually gifted students show potential for performing at high levels when compared with others of their age, experience, or environment. These students exhibit high performance capability in intellectual areas and/or specific academic and talent fields. Outstanding abilities are present in students from all cultural groups, across all economic strata, and in all areas of human endeavor.

It is the belief of Elizabeth City-Pasquotank Schools that outstanding academic abilities exist in all ethnic, geographic, and socioeconomic groups. Students that have an exceptional academic or intellectual potential must be recognized, challenged, and nurtured through differentiated services beyond those which are ordinarily provided by the regular education program.

Services for these students must be part of the overall educational program that supports excellence for all students. This can best be accomplished through the provision of differentiated services that match each student's gifted characteristics.

The Elizabeth City-Pasquotank Schools' district AIG Plan has been developed to provide appropriate programs for gifted students. Only when there is collaboration and communication among schools, parents, and the community will the potential of our gifted be realized.
