Learning Immersion/Talent Development

At the elementary level, our district offers the Learning Immersion/ Talent Development (LI/TD) magnet theme at six schools. 

The LI/TD theme is designed to provide gifted and advanced students with an appropriately challenging learning environment focused on best practices for gifted education. The Learning Immersion (LI) program is designed to nurture gifted potential and develop their talents in students in grades K-5 to help them reach their greatest academic potential. The Talent Development (TD) program serves gifted students in third-fifth grades with rigorous instruction. Gifted students in the TD program at a LI/TD magnet school have automatic continuation into an IB middle school within their transportation zone.
