Gifted Education Program
Thank you for your interest in gifted education in the Andover Public Schools. Gifted education in Kansas is a part of special education and follows special education processes and procedures. A student must be found eligible to participate in the gifted education program. Once a student is identified as having the characteristics of giftedness and displays needs that can't be met in the regular education classroom, an Individualized Education Program (IEP) is written. The IEP guides the instruction for the student within the gifted education and general education programs.
There are two full-time gifted educators for six elementary schools. Each middle school has one full-time gifted education teacher and each high school has one full-time gifted education teacher.
