The Williamsburg-James City County Program for Gifted Students provides services for potentially gifted and identified gifted students in grades K-12. Students are continuously screened for gifted services, but screening for the 5th grade Specific Academic gifted identification process for fourth graders will take place second semester of this school year. Students that qualify for the Specific Academic category will receive gifted services in the academic areas of math and/or language arts in 5th grade. If you are interested in learning more about this program, or would like to know if your child is a candidate for screening for gifted services, please contact Debbie Besnier, the gifted resource teacher/specialist here at Matthew Whaley by February 1, 2017. She can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
