Boyertown Area School District's
Boyertown Elementary School offers many opportunities for enrichment in the regular education classroom. For those students who require additional enrichment programming, the district offers two programs for elementary students who test in the top 2 % in nationally standardized intelligence testing: The Primary Enrichment Program (PEP) and the Boyertown Elementary Enrichment Program (BEEP). The following screening procedures were reviewed and endorsed by the administration and comply with state education rules and regulations.
Research indicates that the most effective method with which to identify students who are thought to be gifted is to utilize multiple criteria.
