7460 – Programs For High Ability Learners


The Grand Island Board of Education recognizes high ability learners as a group of students with specialized learning needs. Consistent with district philosophy, the School District of Grand Island shall establish programs to identify and provide educational opportunities to high ability learners in an integrated continuum of services provided, to the extent possible, at the students' school of regular attendance.

"Learner with high ability shall mean a student who gives evidence of high performance capability in such areas as intellectual, creative, or artistic capacity or in specific academic fields and who requires acceleration or differentiated curriculum programs in order to develop those capabilities fully." (Neb. Rev. Stat. 79–1107(3))
