    MISSION STATEMENT
     
          The mission of the Long Beach School District gifted program is to ensure that intellectually gifted children, as defined by the Mississippi Departmentof 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.

         The Long Beach School District provides a program of enrichment for intellectually gifted students in second through sixth grade.  Gifted classes, called “Discovery," serve second and third graders at W. J. Quarles and Reeves Elementary Schools and fourth, fifth, and sixth grade gifted students at Harper McCaughan Elementary.   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 require that intellectually gifted students in grades two through six be provided services by a teacher with gifted endorsementfor a minimum of five hours per week.
