My child is supposed to be in a Gifted class. Why doesn't it say Gifted next to their class?
- All of the teachers at Pinckneyville have been certified to teach gifted courses, so all students benefit from gifted instructional strategies.
- If your child has been identified as gifted, by meeting certain qualifications, the classes on their schedule will have GF/GIFT next to them. (For example, Language Arts GIF 7).
- If your child has not been identified as gifted, they may still be in a gifted cluster class, but it will not be designated on their schedule.
