 Individualized Education Program

     In West Virginia, planning for services in grades 1 - 8 and Exceptional Gifted grades 9-12 is done through the Individualized Education Program (IEP). This link is to general IEP planning guidance.

     There is no set statewide or county-wide program; the IEP is individualized to the student's needs. However, generally, the focus of gifted programming is on;

  • Concepts - emphasized for deeper understanding and
  • Content - reinforced or accelerated

     The IEP development begins with a meeting notice to invited members. Effort must be made to schedule a mutually agreed upon place and time.
