The Charter Institute at Erskine Schools recognize gifted students and their needs. Gifted and talented students are those who are identified in grades 2 -12 as demonstrating high performance ability or potential in academic and/or artistic areas. These students often require an educational program beyond the normally provided general school program in order to achieve their potential. The purpose of these documents is to provide guidance for policies and procedures regarding the gifted and talented program. The Charter Institute at Erskine maintains the role of an authorizer and LEA. Each charter school within the Institute has the autonomy to develop policies and procedures individualized to meet the needs of the school, if those policies and procedures are consistent with State and Federal Laws, the school’s charter, as well as contract and Institute policies and procedures.
