The K-12 Gifted Program, LEAP (Learning Enrichment Activities Program), is designed to meet the individualized needs of students identified as mentally gifted, as outlined in each
student’s Gifted Individualized Program (GIEP). The district provides gifted programming at each level (elementary, middle school, and high school). Opportunities for enrichment and/or
acceleration are based on the individual needs of each student, as determined by the GIEP Team.
In compliance with Chapter 16 of the PA School Code, the Palmyra Area School District’s gifted program is planned to provide specially designed instruction and experiences to address a
gifted learner’s needs for enrichment and/or acceleration and to accommodate the student’s individual academic abilities. Chapter 16 regulations required the use of multiple
criteria to identify gifted education services.
