Gifted and Talented

Elementary GT services include instruction by a teacher with the appropriate GT Foundations training within a cluster grouping model (small group of identified GT students within the general education classroom) which allows for opportunities for curricular tasks that include greater depth, complexity, and pacing while working independently and with other GT students as well as students not identified. Parents/guardians of identified GT students at the elementary level should expect a GT Student Services Summary each semester completed by the teacher or another form of documentation of the academic options provided. 

Additional Academic Options for Kocurek Elementary have included family information

and STEM challenge nights, student game nights, various after school clubs, Math Pentathlon, Destination Imagination, Kindness Project, and end of the year field trips for GT students grades 3-5.
