Gifted & Talented Advisory Committee (GTAC)

The Gifted and Talented Advisory Council (GTAC) has played an important role since 1976 in supporting gifted and talented services in LPS as well as keeping local schools abreast of research and best practices in the field.

The purpose of the G/T Advisory Council is to provide the Board of Education with perspective on the education of gifted and talented students in the Littleton Public Schools from: 

  • School parent representatives
  • School G/T facilitators 
  • Elementary and secondary principal representatives 
  • Community members
  • Education Services Center administrative representatives
  • Students

The Council consists of 60 members who meet monthly and report to the Board of Education through the GTAC Executive Committee Chair and the district coordinator once a year. Members are appointed by each school principal for a term not to exceed two years and approved by the Board of Education.

Council charges related to gifted education are approved by the Board of Education for study and analysis. Charges from the Board of Education studied in the past include: 

  • Gender-based instruction
  • Articulation of students from grade to grade and level to level 
  • Funding of gifted education 
  • Data disaggregation and analysis for improving G/T services 
  • Identification and services for underachieving and twice-exceptional students 
  • Collaboration and communication with G/T students, their parents, classroom teachers, G/T facilitators, and building principals 
  • LPS policy, regulations, and exhibits on gifted education

For further information about GTAC please contact the district G/T coordinator at 303-347-3477.
