Mitchell Public Schools recognizes that the student population includes students with exceptional academic, creative or artistic abilities that should be developed using alternatives to the standard curriculum. These high ability learners should be identified and the school district should provide programs or services that will address the educational needs of the identified students. The district will provide the students with appropriately challenging curricula and activities based upon their learning abilities and styles within the available resources of the district. It also recognizes that these high ability learners may be identified in different ways, and that those capabilities are not limited by race, creed, national origin, gender, physical abilities or economic status. The district also believes that teachers and the community are necessary partners in the development of creative experiences for the high ability learners to demonstrate and expand their potential.
