Nominations for Excel

ExCEL is a district-wide gifted program for the Indian River School District’s academically talented children. The program takes place within the regular school day with an ExCEL teacher providing services for the student. Participating students engage in small group instruction, which emphasizes higher level thinking skills.

If your child is currently in grade three or four and you feel he/she is in the top 2% to 5% of his/her grade level, you may nominate him/her for the ExCEL program. Nomination forms may be obtained from your child’s school. Forms must be returned to the school office no later than Friday May 11th, in order for the ExCEL teacher to complete the screening process before the end of this school year.

For additional information regarding the ExCEL program, please contact Kelly Dorman, Supervisor of Elementary Instruction at  or 302-436-1000.
