An Ohio program for students who are gifted is designed to build on students' strengths by allowing them to work independently in an online classroom. "Since it's a virtual program, it really opens doors, because we can individualize the program by selecting the types of classes that kids need," said Amy Bain, gifted coordinator for one of the participating districts. "The schools focus so much on helping kids with weakness. We have to help kids develop their strengths, as well."
