Discovery and GT

The Douglas County School District uses a Response to Intervention (RTI) framework to guide instructional decisions in order to meet the needs of all learners, including those with advanced learning needs. Through a Multi-Tiered System of Support, Pine Lane provides a continuum of programming for Gifted and Talented learners. Programming options include, but are not limited to, accelerated/differentiated content, flexible groupings based on abilities and interests and clusters groups. Programming delivery is within the regular classroom setting with like-minded peers supported by the classroom teacher.

For students whose needs are so extensive that they cannot be met in the traditional classroom setting, the Discovery Program Magnet for gifted learners may be an appropriate placement. Pine Lane is one of four Douglas County elementary schools that offer this program.
