Gifted and Talented Learners
Scholars participating in the GAL program have been formally identified as gifted, advanced, or talent development learners by the district using a non-verbal ability test (NNAT3) and Amplify or MCAP data. All scholars in Kindergarten are given the NNAT3 for early identification. In order to qualify for GAL, scholars must score in at least the 73rd percentile on the NNAT3 assessment. GAL scholars receive at least two pull out sessions each week for forty-five minutes and complete lessons and activities in Jacob’s Ladder (reading), M2 or M3 (math), the William and Mary Science Units, and independent learning projects.
