Gifted & Talented

WCE Students currently identified as Gifted & Talented (GT) may receive the following services through SBISD:

  • Primary Gifted Program (PGP): K – 2nd grade
    In addition to daily GT services in their WCE classrooms, identified GT students in grades K-2 are offered GT services through a pull-out program for 90 to 120 minutes a week (students remain on the WCE campus during this time). Pull-out instruction focuses on the development of independent research skills and on meeting the social-emotional needs of GT students.

 

  • SPIRAL at Bendwood – serving 3rd – 5th graders 
    In addition to daily GT services in their WCE classrooms, identified GT students in grades 3-5 are offered GT services through a pull-out program that takes place at the Bendwood campus. Students are bussed from the WCE to Bendwood one day a week for a full day of services with GT students from other campuses.

    Instruction in the SPIRAL program at Bendwood is interdisciplinary. Units of study are designed to provide the depth and complexity that GT students need, while also addressing their social-emotional needs. For the 2019 – 2020 school year, WCE students participating in SPIRAL go to Bendwood on Mondays. Please click here for the current year SPIRAL calendar for specific start and end dates to this program, which starts later and ends earlier than the normal SBISD calendar.

If you have a WCE Student currently identified as GT and would like further campus-specific information and ways to connect to other GT parents, please contact the WCE GT-Spiral Liaison to be added to the parent email list.
