The Westport Board of Education provides programs and services to students who have been identified as gifted. Programs are designed to provide gifted students with specialized in-depth instruction and opportunities for independent study. In addition, the program provides the student with positive group experiences with their intellectual peers. Program components include:
The Elementary Workshop Program – Grades K-5
Grades K-2: Identified students whose needs cannot be met in the regular program receive individual instruction from the building based Workshop Program teacher on an “as needed” basis.
Grades 3-5: gifted students meet with the Workshop Program teacher in their individual schools for two hours each week. Gifted teachers also collaborate in regular education classrooms to extend units/lessons for gifted and high achieving students.
