Talent Development Model

The Center for Talent Development (CTD) provides a rigorous, standards-based instruction model based off Gifted and Talented (GT) practices and pedagogy.  At CTD, we look at multiple measures beyond the Colorado Department of Education criteria for GT for our Talent Development identification (GT/D) process.  The different measurements that we use for the GT/D identification are listed below.

If your child has not yet met these requirements don’t worry we offer universal Gifted and Talented instructional practices for all students during core instruction.  We also are developing a process to identify and develop students talents in the following non academic areas.
