St. Louis Park Public Schools believes that each student has untapped brilliance that can be fostered through gifted education. The District has added two Talent Development Teachers at each elementary school site to provide Gifted and Talented programs for each K-5 student.
Additionally, we believe that all students benefit from an education that provides strengths based, culturally relevant enrichment rather than one that intervenes based on deficits and provides remediation. Beginning with the 2021-22 school, elementary school sites will replace all pull-out remedial math and reading intervention programs with research-based enrichment programs, co-teaching, and coaching. Each elementary school site will also have a literacy specialist to provide culturally relevant coaching and support for K-3 teachers, students, and classrooms.
