Welcome to the Jeffco Gifted and Talented webpage!  We are focused on Actualizing Learners’ Potential for gifted and high ability learners in Jeffco Schools. We believe all students deserve an education that will provide meaningful growth academically, socially and emotionally. See our Definition of a GT Student and our Board Policy on Gifted Education.

Reclassification of GT Identification Categories/Strength Areas

Colorado Gifted Education Review

Jeffco recently underwent our Colorado Gifted Education Review (C-GER) where a team from the Colorado Department of Education (CDE) visited various schools in our district and talked to parents, educators and students about gifted education in our district.  We received a great deal of valuable feedback from this process, and appreciate everyone who took time to provide input.  You can view a copy of our C-GER report from CDE here.
