Thank you for your interest in
Gifted Education in the Blue
District. Gifted Education in Kansas is a part of Special Education and
follows Special Education processes and procedures. A student must
be found eligible to participate in the gifted education program. Once a
student is identified as having the characteristics of giftedness and displays needs that can't be met in the regular education classroom, an Individualized
Education Program (IEP) is written. The IEP guides the instruction for the
student within the gifted education and general education programs.
The Blue Valley Board of Education
fully supports gifted education. Each elementary school has a full-time gifted
education teacher; each middle school has one or two gifted education teachers;
and each high school has two gifted education teachers.
If your student is already identified as gifted and you have questions about his or her program or progress, contact the gifted education teacher at your child's school.
If you have questions about the Gifted Education Program in Blue Valley, contact the Coordinator of Gifted Services, Kristin Asquith, at (913) 239-4367.
