The Douglas County School District uses a Response to Intervention (RtI) framework to guide instructional decisions in order to meet the needs of all learners, including those with advanced learning needs. Through a Multi-Tiered System of Supports we provide a continuum of programming for Gifted and Talented learners including Neighborhood Schools Programming at the elementary and secondary levels and the Discovery Program Magnet in grades two through six. For students whose needs are so extensive that they cannot be met in the traditional classroom setting, the Discovery Program Magnet for gifted learners may be an appropriate placement.
