MISSION STATEMENT: 
The mission of the Long Beach School District gifted program is to insure
 
that intellectually gifted children, as defined by the Mississippi Department
 
of Education*, are offered appropriate educational experiences that are
 
qualitatively different from those available in the regular classroom in order
 
to provide opportunities for them to realize their abilities and potential.

 

 

The Long Beach School District, in accordance with the Mississippi Department                                              

of Education’s regulations and standards for gifted education programs, is  
 
committed to identifying intellectually gifted students and providing a program
                                           
of enrichment that addresses their unique talents, needs, and learning styles.
 
Recognizing the intellectual, emotional, and social needs of gifted students;  as
 
well as their potential for creativity, higher-level thinking, independent  learning,
 
and leadership; the program addresses cognitive and affective needs with a
 
curriculum that is qualitatively different from the regular classroom.

LBSD Gifted Program Handbook

 

 

The Long Beach School District provides a program of enrichment for intellectually

 
gifted students in second through sixth grade.  Gifted classes, which are available
 
only at the elementary level, are called “Discovery” and serve second through sixth
 
grade students at each elementary school.  Students spend one day per week in the
 
gifted “pull-out” program and the rest of the week in their general education classrooms. 

Mississippi Department of Education gifted regulations and state mandate require that

 
intellectually gifted students in grades two through six be provided services by a teacher
 
with gifted endorsement for a minimum of five hours per week.
