The Paradise Valley Unified School District’s Gifted Education Department and the United Parent Council will host several Gifted Education Parent Seminars for the 2016-17 school year.
The first seminar, “They Say My Child is Gifted… How Does This Impact His/Her Education in PVSchools?” will be held from noon to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 31 in the Critical Thinking Room at the Community Resource Center, 15002 N. 32nd St.
Dr. Dina Brulles, director of Gifted Education, will provide an overview of the curriculum of gifted services that are available for preschool through high school students in PVSchools, according to a press release.
Parents attending will gain insights into the continuum of services offered in the district to determine which is the best fit for their child’s distinctive learning needs.
In addition to describing the gifted services offered, Dr. Brulles will discuss academic needs such as when to provide acceleration, how teachers differentiate curriculum and instruction, and how they incorporate depth and complexity into lessons.
The Scottsdale Independent is available for free every Wednesday.
