A task force in Natrona County schools in Wyoming will examine how the district educates its students in the gifted and talented program. Fewer than one-third of the district's students who are gifted take Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate courses in high school, and some take remedial classes in college, according to a recent report. In addition, 87% report being bullied, the report found. One trustee also suggested the group consider how the program is being funded and how the district's resources are being used to support it.
