Federal Programs: Gifted Education

The Mississippi Gifted Education Act of 1989, as amended in 1993, mandates that each public school district within the state provide gifted education programs for intellectually gifted students in grades 2-6. “Intellectually Gifted Children” shall mean those children and youth who are found to have an exceptionally high degree of intelligence as documented through the identification process.The Lincoln County School District believes that intellectually gifted students need a differentiated curriculum that takes into consideration individual learning needs and abilities. The mission of the Lincoln County Gifted Program is to help students discover and develop their potential with appropriate education experiences.
