Gifted Education


A message from the Gifted Education Coordinator:

The Clear Creek School District’s Gifted Education Program strives to provide each gifted student with a differentiated educational experience in order to meet each of their individual needs. Gifted students receive services within the general education classroom through ongoing and explicit support from their classroom teachers and the Gifted Education Coordinator. The program has a very comprehensive referral process to find and evaluate all students who may need gifted services. Once a student is referred, the gifted education team will decide whether the team moves to evaluation, declines to evaluate, or recommends that the student is placed on a strengths-based intervention plan.
All gifted students meet and help develop their Advanced Learning Plan (ALP) annually. With the help of their teachers, counselor, parents and the Gifted Education Coordinator they develop relevant academic and affective goals. The teacher and Gifted Coordinator work together to progress monitor each student who is a part of the Gifted Program quarters 2,3, & 4. Students are also provided with pull-out groups to help address their affective needs and to meet and work with other gifted students within the school.

Please contact me any time for referral documents or other gifted resources at anytime throughout the school year. Deadline for gifted education referrals is April 1st annually. For more information see the Mt. Evans BOCES Gifted Education page at

Heidi J. Lupinacci
