Many gifted students require advanced content and instruction in one or two subject areas. These students may be able to attend class with older students for those subjects. For instance, a third-grade student attends fourth-grade mathematics or language arts. In exceptional cases, students may "grade skip" to a higher level. The decision to potentially skip an entire grade level should consider the student's academic and social readiness and involve the student, family, teachers, administrators, and BOCES gifted coordinator.
