Gifted & Talented

Image result for gifted and talented

At Slater Elementary, part of our mission is to meet the needs of all our students. Our advanced learners are challenged within the classroom by their homeroom teacher.

Each student that has been formally identified as a Gifted and Talented student, will write two goals. One is an academic goal and one is an affective goal. These goals are collaboratively developed with the student, family members, and the teacher. 

Each year 2nd Grade students in Jeffco take the CogAT test (Cognitive Abilities Test) in the Fall Semester. This assessment measures reasoning skills in three batteries: verbal, nonverbal and quantitative. The results help teachers identify a student's reasoning and problem solving skills to better meet their instructional needs in the classroom.
