In what areas may a student be identified as Gifted and Talented?
What is the Primary Talent Pool (PTP)?
The Primary Talent Pool is a group of student who possess demonstrated or potential ability to perform at exceptionally high levels in the primary years (Kindergarten through Third Grade). These students may be referred to as high-potential learners. The purpose of selecting students to participate in a Primary Talent Pool is to provide early enrichment for those students whose talents must be nurtured in order for those talents to fully develop. These students are not automatically identified as gifted once they reach the fourth grade. They must be formally identified by meeting certain criteria.
