8242 EDUCATION OF THE TALENT IN ALL STUDENTS

The Brockport Central Schools are committed to an educational program that recognizes the uniqueness of the individual. Provision should be made for the enhancement of independence, originality of thought, task commitment, leadership, creativity, curiosity, depth of understanding, critical thinking, exceptional skills, communication, talents, and/or special areas of interest of each student.

All students require special motivation and challenges as well as a basic educational program to reach their maximum potential. We will strive to nurture educational experiences which will afford all students the opportunities to enhance self-worth and will lead them to the concept of self-learning and to encourage self-actualization.

The District believes that for the majority of educational experiences all students should function with their peers in stimulating and challenging settings. Each student requires educational resources and experiences which meet their special needs.

Programming for enrichment requires the creation of an environment in which we make deliberate efforts to recognize students' emerging strengths, talents, and interests and then nurture them through appropriate and diverse experiences and activities. Planning these experiences should involve the student, teachers, parents, and resource personnel who are responsible for the educational development of the student.
